ON THE CAMPUS . 




Third Graduation Exercises 

Nursing Program 

Wednesday evening, September 30, 

1959 
Dr. Richard M. Packard, Speaker Rita 
Kelleher, dean of Boston College 
School of Nursing, Barbara Johnson, 
Millicent Carlson, Judith Kaufman. 
Second row: B. Meade Simpson, Sandra 
Brideau, Carolyn Reid and Vivian 
Spooner Wass 

Not least among the innovations 
which marked the opening of Lasell's 
109th session is the fact that the presi- 
dent's home, or the "White House" as 
it has come to be known, served as the 
center for varied social events of the 
opening week. Most elaborate of the 
affairs scheduled was the gala open 
house on Saturday evening, September 
19, when Dr. and Mrs. Packard were 
hosts to 700 members of the student 
body and the faculty. In view of the 
numbers involved, the facilities of the 
spacious residence were supplemented 
by an outdoor tent, pitched on the 
adjoining lawn and decorated with 
Japanese lanterns. 

On Wednesday evening, the 16th, 
Dr. and Mrs. Packard entertained the 
college administration, staff, faculty and 
resident heads for dessert and coffee. 
The previous Thursday they entertained 
the rest of the large college family. 
Occasion was a mid-morning coffee 
break, at which time the kitchen staff, 
all members of the housekeeping depart- 
ment and the maintenance crews were 
invited to meet the Packard family and 



tour the newly decorated White House. 
Following the graduation exercises 
of the third annual Nursing Program, 
there was a reception at the president's 
home for the graduates, their families 
and the other students currently in the 
Nursing curriculum. 



The Lasell campus, traditionally al- 
most a ghost town during the summer 
months, teemed with people this past 
vacation as four large groups made use 
of the college facilities for national and 
regional conferences during June and 
and July. The season opened with the 
annual national meeting of the 
Women's International League for 
Peace and Freedom from June 16 to 
22. Attended by more than 150 dele- 
gates from 20 states, Canada, Israel 
and South America, the League heard 
a series of distinguished speakers, in- 
cluding Dr. Karl Sax, professor of 
biology at Harvard; Dr. A. Paul Hare 
of the department of social relations 
at Harvard; and Professor Emile 
Benoit of Columbia University. 

From June 23 to 29 the Quakers 
of New England assembled on campus 
to hold their 299th annual meeting. 
More than 300 members of the Society 
of Friends were present for devotional 
services, panels, and lectures. 

The Northern New England annual 
Y-Teen conference followed from June 
29 to July 3. Organized under the 
sponsorship of the YWCA, the five- 
day meeting was attended by approxi- 
mately 125 girl delegates. 

The final conference was an annual 
leadership training school conducted by 
the United Presbyterian Church, Synod 
of New England and the Board of 
Christian Education of the United 
Presbyterian Church in the U. S. A. 
Courses and laboratory experiences 
were arranged for church leaders on 
all levels and were held at Lasell from 
July 12 to 18. 



LASELL LEAVES 



NEW FACES ON THE CAMPUS .... 




Mrs. Frances Johnson 

Mrs. Frances W. Johnson, newly 
appointed Assistant Academic Dean, 
has already won the respect of both her 
colleagues and her advisees by the rapid- 
ity of her grasp of Lasell affairs and 
her helpfulness in coping with the 
kind of problems Lasell girls specialize 
in. This flair for coping has been the 
determining factor in Mrs. Johnson's 
career to date, and she brings to Lasell 
a rich background in guidance and 
counseling experience which dates from 
her graduation from college. 

A native of Torrington, Conn., and 
a graduate of Torrington High School, 
Mrs. Johnson did her undergraduate 
work at Connecticut College for Women, 
from which she received her B. A. 
degree in 1953. Her marriage to a 
medical student doing his work at the 
University of Colorado and at Stan- 
ford took her to the West, and she 
embarked on graduate work in the 
area of educational guidance at Colo- 
rado College in Colorado Springs, with 
interludes of related course work and 
counseling at the University of Colorado 
along the way. In 1956 Mrs. Johnson 
received her M. A. degree from Colo- 
rado College in her chosen field. 

That same year she enrolled for 



postgraduate work in guidance at San 
Francisco State College where, while 
still a student, she was named to the 
faculty committee which initiated the 
first guidance program at the huge 
South San Francisco High School. 

A tireless scholar, Mrs. Johnson's 
deep convictions about the education 
of young women are inspiring to hear 
about, and it is reassuring to know that 
they come from the heart and that she 
worked her own way completely 
through college and graduate school, 
even managing by virtue of attending 
two colleges and holding down three 
jobs simultaneously for one brief period 
to help her young doctor as well. And 
all this with honor grades which made 
it possible for her to be a four-year 
recipient of one of the coveted Swayze 
Scholarships at Connecticut College for 
Women. 



Miss Marguerite M. Barrett of Need- 
ham, Mass., has been named one of 
three new instructors in the Art Depart- 
ment. Her associate is Mrs. Ann V. 
Cuneo of Boston, and they both hold 
the degree of B. S. in Art Education 
from the Massachusetts School of Art. 
Miss Amelia J. Terrazano of Avon, 
Mass. comes to Lasell straight from a 
career in professional commercial art, 
in which she has had experience in 
the fields of advertising and newspaper 
fashion illustration. 

Two new members of the Secretarial 
Department are Miss Margaret S. 
Ford of Bailey Island, Maine and Miss 
Mary Jo Sweeney of Peabody, Mass. 
Miss Ford, a graduate of the College 
of William and Mary, holds the M. Ed. 
degree from Boston University. Miss 
Sweeney received the B. S. in Ed. degree 
from State Teachers College. 

Mr. Charles W. Fielder comes to 
the History Department as a replace- 



LASELL LEAVES 



ment for Dr. Packard. A native of 
North Dakota, Mr. Fielder was edu- 
cated at the U. S. Naval Academy at 
Annapolis and served in the last war 
as a naval aviator with the rank of 
Captain. 

New instructors in the English De- 
partment are Mr. Edward R. Lawson, 
Jr. and Mr. Kenneth Matheson. Mr. 
Lawson has attended Rutgers Univer- 
sity, and holds both the A. A. degree 
from the College of General Education 
and the B. A. degree from the College 
of Liberal Arts of Boston University, 
where he is currently completing the 
requirements for his Master's degree. 
Mr. Matheson, also a Boston University 
man, holds the Bachelor's degree from 
the College of Liberal Arts and Mas- 
ter's from the Graduate School. He is 
a member of Sigma Phi Epsilon and of 
the B. U. Alumni Corp., of which he 
once served as vice-president. 

Mr. William K. Tinkham of Nan- 
tucket will also be associated with the 
History Department. A veteran of the 
second World War, Mr. Tinkham has 
studied at Oxford University, Boston 
University and the Harvard Graduate 
School of Arts and Sciences, where he 
is currently engaged in work leading 
to the Master's degree. 

Mr. Kenneth R. Whittemore of Nor- 
wood has been named a new instructor 
in Sociology. A graduate of St. Law- 
rence University, Mr. Whittemore has 
also studied at the Andover Newton 
Theological School and the Crane 
Theological School of Tufts University. 

Mrs. Bettina Hall Harrison of Win- 
chester will instruct in courses in Lab- 
oratory Technology and Microbiology 
in the Science Department. Mrs. Harri- 
son is no stranger to the campus, having 
taught here in 1940-41. She received 
the B. S. degree from the University 
of Massachusetts and the M. A. degree 
from Radcliffe College. 

Miss Florence Liston of Cambridge 
will assist Mrs. Ruth Lindquist in the 



Science Department. She has taught 
at Wellesley College, has been a teach- 
ing fellow at Harvard and is a member 
of the American Chemical Society, the 
American Association of Textile Chem- 
ists and Colorists, and the Harvard 
Teachers Association. 

Miss Lois D. Polley joins the Lasell 
faculty in the position of instructor in 
Fundamentals of Nursing. She is a 
graduate of the New England Baptist 
Hospital School of Nursing, and of 
Boston University, from which she re- 
ceived the B. S. degree in 1957. A 
member of the Army Air Force Nurse 
Corps, Miss Polley has also served as 
assistant instructor at both the Newton- 
Wellesley Hospital and the New Eng- 
land Baptist Hospital School of Nurs- 
ing. 

Mrs. Dorothy S. Wadman, a substi- 
tute in the English Department last 
year, will devote her time exclusively 
to speech. Mrs. Wadman is a graduate 
of Simmons College and of Boston 
University Graduate School. Before 
coming to Lasell, Mrs. Wadman has 
taught on the faculties of Wheelock 
College and Newton Junior College. 

Mrs. Jane C. Wyman, a college 
neighbor on Woodland Road, now 
joins the faculty as an instructor in 
Child Development. 

New Assistant Librarian is Mrs. Rita 
P. Abbott of Sherborn. Mrs. Abbott, 
a graduate of the University of New 
Hampshire and of the Simmons Col- 
lege Graduate Library School. 



Among the seven new housemothers 
on campus to greet new and returning 
students are Miss Constance Blackstock 
'09, Mrs. Marion Miller, mother of 
Janet Miller Schmid '41, and Mrs. 
Ellen Miller, niece of the late Mrs. 
Statira P. McDonald. Miss Blackstock 
has returned to Clark Cottage, Mrs. 
Marion Miller has been assigned to 
Hawthorne House, and Mrs. Ellen Mil- 
ler is at Blaisdell.

FACULTY AND ADMINISTRATION .... 



Election of three new members to 
Lasell's Board of Trustees was an- 
nounced in July. They are Dr. Donald 
J. Winslow of Auburndale, Dr. Den- 
ton G. Nutter of Newton Centre and 
Louise Tardivel Higgins '37 of Au- 
burndale. 

Dr. Winslow, younger son of the 
late ' Dr. and Mrs. Guy M. Wins- 
low, holds B.S. and M.A. degrees from 
Tufts University and Ph.D. from Bos- 
ton University, where he is chairman 
of the English Department. He is a 
member of Phi Beta Kappa, The 
Modern Language Association, The 
National Council of Teachers of Eng- 
lish and The College English Asso- 
ciation. 

Dr. Nutter is the husband of Mil- 
dred Strain Nutter '17 and father of 
Marion Nutter Bredehoft '55. A 
graduate of Harvard College and Har- 
vard Medical School, Dr. Nutter has 
maintained a general medical practice 
in Newton Centre for forty years and 
is an emeritus member of the surgical 
staff of the Newton-Wellesley Hospi- 
tal. 

"Tap", a past president of Lasell 
Alumnae, Inc., is secretary of the Class 
of 1937 and has served as class agent 
chairman since 1952. 

Dr. Egon E. Kattwinkel, chief cardi- 
ologist at the Newton-Wellesley Hos- 
pital, has been elected president of the 
Greater Boston Chapter of the Massa- 
chusetts Heart Association. Dr. Katt- 
winkel is a Trustee of the College. 

Commencement at Lasell always 
seems incomplete without the presence 
of Mrs. Alice Hilliard Smith Corbin, 
trustee and former faculty member. 
Barbara Smith Huntington '23 reports 
that her mother met with a most un- 
fortunate accident, resulting in a bro- 
ken right shoulder, while on her way 
to Auburndale last May. Mrs. Corbin, 
driving north with Mary Godard 
Hadley x-'23, stopped for luncheon in 



Shreveport, La., and fell in the lobby 
of one of the local hotels. The latest 
word reports her fast and complete 
recovery. 

Frances King Dolley (Fac. '08-' 17) 
is "delighted to know my grand-niece, 
Betty Nevin, has been accepted at 
Lasell for September 1959. Do hope 
this year will bring a return to the 
college for me." 

Dorothy E. Shank (Fac. '12-'20) and 
two co-authors have completed the 
manuscript of a textbook on Foods 
and Nutrition. Miss Shank writes: "It 
will be published late in I960 or early 
1961 and will be for senior high 
school use. The trend now is to illus- 
trate textbooks profusely so getting 
photographs that are suitable and try- 
ing to think of ideas for drawings and 
working with the artist who executes 
these ideas are almost as much work as 
writing the copy. Have recently lec- 
tured to Ohio dietitians about elec- 
tronic cooking in hospitals and have 
done some consultant work for a com- 
pany that makes mobile kitchens. 
There aren't many dull moments, and 
I am inclined to agree with one of my 
retired friends: 'Retirement is fun if 
you have time for it.' "

Kay Menges Brick (Fac. '32-'36) 
was one of the 125 women pilots par- 
ticipating in the "Powder Puff Derby" 
on the Fourth of July weekend. Mrs. 
Brick's co-pilot in the 13th All Wom- 
en's Transcontinental Air Race was 
artist Marion Lopez of Norton, Mass. 

In May Elizabeth Swaney Parella 
(Fac. '48-'52) won a working fellow- 
ship in a national contest sponsored by 
the Vogue Pattern Service of New 
York City. Vogue chose a high school 
teacher and a college instructor in 
home economics to serve as associate 
editors for six weeks this summer, and 
Mrs. Parella was the winning high 
school teacher. Her duties with Vogue 
included one week in Greenwich with 
Conde Nast Publications, where the 
patterns are made, and the remainder 
of the time in the New York office. 
For the past four years Betty has been 
the home economics teacher for both 
the junior and senior high schools of 
Newtown, Conn. During that time 
she developed the department in all 
phases — sewing, clothes designing, 
cooking and homemaking — to the 
point where the Newtown school sys- 
tem has gained a reputation for having 
one of the best courses in homemak- 
ing. In September Mrs. Parella was 
appointed head of the home economics 
department in the new Easton-Red- 
ding Regional School. 

Miss Jane Stonberg, instructor in 
Psychology since 1958, became the 
bride of Herbert Rakatansky on June 
14, 1959. A graduate of Brown Uni- 



versity, he is in his fourth year at 
Tufts University School of Medicine. 

Former Bursar Miss Muriel A. Lan- 
dau has been appointed assistant treas- 
urer of Bradford Junior College. Miss 
Landau and Virginia Tribou (Fac- 
'36- ) have moved to a new apart- 
ment at 3 University Avenue, Burling- 
ton, Mass. 

Dr. James M. Moulton is acting 
chairman of the Department of Biolo- 
gy at Bowdoin College for this college 
year. Dr. Moulton is the husband of 
Hope Kibbe (Fac. '43-'49).

Peirce of the English Department, is 
now assistant director of admissions at 
Trinity College, Hartford, Conn. 

One of the ten graduate winners of 
travelling scholarships for study over- 
seas, awarded by the Boston Museum 
School of Fine Arts, was granted to 
Edward Praczukowski. He and his 
wife, the former Anne Malone (Fac. 
'55-'59) are now in Europe. 

The College extends sympathy to 
Miss Elinor Hoag and to Mrs. Mar- 
garet French, members of the English 
Department. Miss Hoag's father, Mr. 
John B. Hoag, died in August at his 
summer home in Sandwich, N. H. Mr. 
Hoag was a retired principal of the 
Woburn (Mass.) School Department. 
Prof. Charles W. French, husband of 
Mrs. French, passed away on May 26, 
1959. He was professor-emeritus of 
modern languages at Boston Uni- 
versity. 




Commencement Day — 1959 



LASELL LEAVES 



LASELL ALUMNAE, INC 



Alumnae Day 1959 proved the most 
successful in Lasell's long history. 
Nearly 500 Alumnae returned to campus 
to join the reunion celebration. Alum- 
nae returned with husbands, Alumnae 
returned with children and Alumnae 
returned with Alumnae. This year 
initiated a new schedule for the re- 
unioning classes. 

The all-class luncheon, served "Under 
the Big Top" on the Recreation Field, 
highlighted the change of schedule, and 
evening parties were arranged by the 
individual classes. The day began with 
registration and morning coffee at 
Plummer Library, and President Doro- 
thy Mosher Stone '42 called the annual 
meeting to order at 11:30 a.m. in 
Rand Lecture Hall. Shirley Gould 
Chesebro '33 read the minutes of the 
1958 meeting, and Ruth Turner Crosby 
'42 gave the treasurer's report. 

President Stone announced the final 
receipts of the 1958-1959 Alumnae 
Fund campaign, and reviewed the vari- 
ous activities of Lasell Alumnae, Inc. 
She told of the American Alumni Coun- 
cil meetings, held in January at the 
University of Massachusetts, attended 
by herself, Elizabeth Harrington Logan 
'49, Marjorie MacOymon '32, and Mr. 
Robert K. Brandriff, newly appointed 
Director of the Alumnae Fund. Dodie 
read the names of the returning stu- 
dents to whom substantial scholarships 
for 1959-60 had been granted. She 
mentioned particularly our Alumnae 
clubs which had participated in the suc- 
cessful sale of Christmas wrapping 
paper, the profit of which is credited 
to The Alumnae "Scholarship Fund. 

Ilene Derick Whelpley '41, chair- 
man of the Nominating Committee, 
announced the following slate of officers 
of the Board of Management for the 



coming year: President, Elizabeth Har- 
rington Logan '49; 1st Vice President, 
Lillian Reese Roche '50, 2d Vice Presi- 
dent, Muriel Ross Benshimol '46, Re- 
cording Secretary, Priscilla Parmenter 
Madden '37, Corresponding Secretary, 
Lillian Feneley Cooley '45, Treasurer, 
Ruth Turner Crosby '42, Assistant 
Treasurer, Ruth Buswell Isaacson '36, 
Alumnae Clubs Advisor, Dorothy Inett 
Taylor '30, Alumnae Fund Chairman, 
Louise Tardivel Higgins '37 and Schol- 
arship Committee Chairman, Shirley 
Gould Chesebro '33. Directors include 
Priscilla Alden Wolfe '19, Antoinette 
Meritt Smith '43, Elaine Towne Bat- 
son '43, Betty Williams McGowan '47 
and Elizabeth Sleight Dexter '53. The 
chairman of the Nominating Committee 
for 1960-61 officers is Dorrit Gegan 
Green '45, and her committee includes 
Lorraine Anderson Crabtree '45 and 
Beverly Peterson Bentley '49. 

Re-elected to the Lasell Corporation 
for 1960-1964 were Marion Ordway 
Corley '11, Barbara Ordway Brewer 
'35 and Ruth Turner Crosby '42. 

Dodie then introduced incoming- 
president Elizabeth Harrington Logan 
and turned the meeting over to her. 
On behalf of the graduating class, 
President Joyce Smethurst '59 presented 
a check to Libby. The check to the 
Alumnae Fund automatically entitles 
each member of the Class of 1959 to 
membership in the Alumnae Associa- 
tion for one year. 

A roll call of classes followed and 
special recognition was given to several 
long-distance travelers. The meeting ad- 
journed with the singing of the Alma 
Mater. 

Respectfully submitted, 
Priscilla Parmenter Madden '37 
Recording Secretary

Nancy Boyce Van Gorder '87-"89 of Wil- 
loughby, Ohio on May 29, 1959. Mrs. Van 
Gorder's daughter, Jane Watterson, writes:

service and strong in faith. She was well, 
active and alert to the end."

Maude Mathews and her twin sister, Miss 
Mable Mathews, celebrated their 90th birth- 
day on April 1, 1959- The Misses Mathews

1896 

In Memoriam: Josephine Chandler Pierce 
on August 13, 1959. Mrs. Pierce, a Maiden 
(Mass.) resident for eighty years, was 
prominent in charitable and civic work. 
Born at Charlestown, she was a daughter 
of John G. Chandler, owner of the Durgin 
Park Market Dining Halls and a prominent 
Maiden banker. Mrs. Pierce was an honor- 
ary member of the Maiden Old & New, a 
member of the Centre Methodist Church

( Lena Josselyn ) , Secretary 

21 Water ston Rd., Newton, Mass. 

1899 

The Class of 1899 was not represented on 
campus in June, but several were with us in 
thoughts. Evelyn Ebert Allen wrote: "The 
60th Reunion of our class will be a very 
important occasion and I deeply regret I 
will not be able to attend. How the years 
have flown by ! And how dearly I cherish 
the memory of my happy days at Lasell and 
of the dear girls who were my classmates." 

And from Gertrude Watson Linscott: "I 
imagine few of my class will be at Lasell for 
I have had no word from those with whom I 
am in touch. Many at our ages find travelling 
very tiring. Do hope the weather is in good 
favor and my very best wishes for the con- 
tinued success of the college." 

M. Edith Prentice Knight suffered a bro- 
ken hip a few years ago and is now at The 
Methodist Home in Franklin, Indiana. She 
sent love and best wishes to all. 

Catherine Mason Prosser sent regrets and 
added: "The cordial invitation to attend the 
Commencement festivities as a guest of La- 
sell is very tempting, and I am sorry I cannot 
accept. It would give me great pleasure to 
see the many additions and improvements 
since our day." 

1904 

From California Mae Chisholm Brown 
writes: "Somewhat of a victim of arthritis, 
but far from a victim in outlook."

1909 

Needless to say, many times I have gone 
over in my mind the very enjoyable sojourn 
at Lasell in celebration of our 50th Reunion. 
It was so pleasant being together in Wood- 
land — but what a far cry from our days of 
1909. Maria Riker Hume, Louise Funk- 
houser Colegrove, Constance Blackstock and 
I were joined by Charlotte Ryder Hall '08 
for the memorable week end. 

We all came away feeling Lasell will 
continue to be the fine school it has always 
been and we are proud to be numbered 
among the Alumnae. We all hope for a 
good year ahead. 

Have listed below a bit of news from 
classmates who were unable to join us on 
June 6th: 

Annie Crowe Collum: As president of the 
alumnae of a Winnipeg school, could not be 
present at Lasell. Says she keeps alert by her 
interest in nieces and nephews. 
Frances Ebersole Hall: Sailed for Italy in 
May — one of many trips abroad. Four 
times a grandmother. 

Amanda Hexter Levy: Planning a trip to 
California with her fourteen-year-old grand-

Dear Girls, 

From all reports our 40th Reunion was a 
grand one. Those attending were Peg 
Houser Hamlin, Frances Coombs, Sybil 
Weymouth Braniff and Dorothy Hall. And 
on campus with husbands were Priscilla 
Alden Wolfe, Helen Moss Post and Miriam 
Bell Bell — the three couples moved on to 
a four-day visit in New Hampshire with the 
Wolfes and were joined there by Olive 
Chase Mayo and husband. 

In June I was in Europe for a two-month 
tour of the British Isles and Scandinavia, 
travelling with my first Lasell roommate, 
Mary Eshleman Willauer. x-'19. We were 
two of the very fortunate 81 survivors of the 
hotel fire in Stalheim, Norway and a har- 
rowing experience it proved to be. 

The returned questionnaires are soon to

Mrs. Elmer J. Bloom 

( Mariesta Howland ) , Secretary 

415 W. Crestwood Drive, Peoria, 111. 

Even tho' 1926 is certainly a travellin' 
class, I'm sure that half the enthralling jour- 
neys are never recorded here. 

However, as I write, Audrey Jackson Dade 
x-'26 and her author-husband are whirling 
thru Germany, the Netherlands, Denmark 
and Sweden (after a June week in Paris) 
and thence on to Norway, winding up with 
a week in London. And on September 15th 
Anita Krakauer Prieto and her Philip whiz 
to Europe by jet plane, a first stop in Paris, 
then a sojourn in Geneva with her sister 
Miriam, who will accompany them on a 
motor trip thru Switzerland, Germany, Aus- 
tria and Italy. 

And a "trek" in our own hemisphere was 
that of Margaret Anderson Gage and her 
husband, Dan, who left Sacramento July 
20th for Texas, thence to Mexico City, to 
Guatemala City and on to San Jose, Costa 
Rica, all by. plane, sailing home from Gol- 
fito to California by lazy United Fruit Steam- 
er August 18th. The occasion for the trip 
(if "Andy" and Dan need an "occasion") 
was Dr. Gage's desire to study the banana 
industry in connection with his articles in 
the field of economics and business adminis- 
tration. (It is interesting, by the way, that 
Dan predicted in a 1955 magazine article 
that the sale of small foreign-made cars in 
this country would soon force Detroit to 
redesign their models in order to compete! ) 

Before winding up her teaching year at 
Mariemont School in Sacramento and pack- 
ing for the Central American "circle tour," 
Andy was hostess for a miniature Lasell re- 
union. On April 5, Madeleine Roth White, 
her husband Herb, and Minerva Damon 
Ludewig '27 drove over from Burlingame 
in Minerva's Volkswagen for a day in 
the Gages' hospitable patio-terrace. Writes 
Andy: "It was a gorgeous day and we ate 
outdoors for the first time this year. Dan 
took pictures and Herb took movies. It 
was grand seeing all of them." Minerva's 
wry postscript read: "Dan and Herb are 
good listeners!" Minerva, who now has an 
apartment in San Francisco returned to the 
Gages' for a week end of conviviality in mid- 
June. 

The Whites — who now make a yearly 
trip to San Francisco to visit business inter- 
ests — returned to Peoria in late April, but 
June 3d found "Rothie" again "en voyage" 
on a motor trip East with friends to visit 
younger son Billy and his bride in their 
new house in Depew, N. Y. Older son Cur- 
tis has just entered the brokerage business 
with his Dad.

As to other Twenty-Sixers, Lolita del 
Pino x-'26, from her home in Havana, loy- 
ally continues to interpret the Castro regime 
to me; and a note from Betty Oppel Morris 
sings the praises of grandmotherhood. 

Our own news is — as in most families 

— an admixture of "sad and glad." April 
30 Elmer and I motored east to be with 
Maris at Smith College's Fathers' Week end 

(mamas are a "fifth wheel" during this 
celebration, but I never miss a stay in the 
Berkshires! ) and thence over to New York 
for a few days at the Statler to see old 
friends and enjoy theatre with Nadine 
Strong James and her husband. During that 
time I had the inestimable privilege of meet- 
ing and talking with wonderful Dr. William 
Hitzig, who worked on the project of the 
Hiroshima Maidens — and more recently 
helped to bring the Ravensbruuck "Lapins" 
to this country for similar rehabilitation — 
and to discuss with him his last fall's visit to 
Schweitzer in the Lambarene forests. 

But the month of May drew to a sad 
close when my husband's mother, a remark- 
ably cultivated and gifted woman — whom 
I've always called Belle-Mere, because of 
our mutual interest in the French tongue 

— drifted away from us in her sleep May 
27 th. Although she was 88 years old, and 
had led a rich, full life, crowded with travel 
all over the world, blessed with five sons 
and honored by her community for her 
musical, civic and philanthropic leadership, 
it was, of course, a great rending of a tie, 
and also, as one of her friends put it, "the 
end of an era." I was poignantly reminded 
of that era — the golden days when Lasell 
girls wore brocaded bustles down to dinner! 

— when it became my task to collate for my 
young daughter all the laces and linens and 
silver goblets which were laid away in this 
day of barbecue spits and "TV dinners"! 

On July 1st at the School Board reorgan- 
ization meeting I "yielded up the gavel" 
(the term of the Presidency is one year only) 
only to receive a far prettier one as souvenir! 
I thought it was very subtle of my gentlemen 
colleagues to present me with a dainty little 
feminine gavel of ebony with a silver band! 
July 5 th we toured east again — this time 
to open the summer household at Scituate, 
Mass., I for a "rest," Peb to his beloved boat, 
Maris for swims and visits, and Elmer to 
join us later. The only labor currently in 
sight is to prepare Miss Maris for Chat- 
tanooga's "Cotton Ball" in late August when 
she will be the houseguest of the Ball's 
Queen. 

Visiting a mutual friend in Scituate, I 
had a pleasant reunion with Betty Johnson 
Coffin, long ago of Lowell, and now of 
Petersburg, Virginia. Betty and her attractive 
soldier-husband, Naylor, are stationed at Fort 



Lee, where Naylor instructs "rookies" and 
Betty is a social welfare worker for the Red 
Cross. Family bereavements have brought 
them to New England several times the past 
year, but for ten years they have been con- 
firmed Southerners. 

I'm hoping to get up to Auburndale for 
a visit — as well as to hear from more La- 
sellians.

Word has at long last come from Haru 
Tokito Matsuda. The letter, dated Novem- 
ber 12, 1958, addressed to Lil Bethel, reads 
in part: "I have not forgotten that I still 
owe letters to many Lasell girls and friends. 
They were so kind and helped me when two 
of my children were ill and I was in great 
need. The office where I worked for about 
ten years was closed in February and ever 
since I have been living on what is called 
retirement allowance. 

"My elder 26-year-old son graduated from 
a theological college in Tokyo and is study- 
ing at Pasadena College in California. He 
started his second year there in September 
1958. A scholarship fund to cover two thirds 
of his expenses has been given to him and 
he works part time for the other one third. 
He is healthy and is doing well in his studies 
now — though there was the usual language 
difficulty to overcome. Good education is 
the best and most lasting gift that parents 
can give their children, I believe. It was 
so in my case, and I am hoping to give it 
to my children also. 

"At present my first concern is to keep 
alive and keep them alive. My daughters, 
22 and 17, are healthy now, but the younger 
boy is not quite healthy yet. He is still

his age. He wants to go to Hokkaido Uni- 
versity as he cannot depend on manual labor. 
The older daughter finished high school in 
March 1958 and she hopes to study English. 
The younger girl now goes to a senior high 
school. 

"It has been thirty years since I graduated 
from Lasell and how I'd love to visit the 
college again and see my friends. But it will 
always be a dream. I often think of the 
green campus — the walk through the woods 
from Woodland Park to the main building.

Dear Girls, 

Perhaps you have been thinking you 
would not hear any news of our 30th Re- 
union at Lasell — and you were almost 
right! It is because ole Em is so very fallible, 
and she's the one who wanted to write up 
the day for you. 

For me the reunion began on Friday, June 
5, when Teddy Pratt Brown met me at 
Bradley Airport and we had the drive from 
Hartford to Wellesley to begin catching up 
on conversation. Teddy's first big news was 
that for the past twelve hours she had been 
a grandmother — and here she was en route 
to reunion instead of viewing her brand new 
granddaughter! 



Harry Hewins Sanderson had us as sleep- 
ing guests, and others came in for the eve- 
ning — Kay Braithwaite Woodworth, Julie 
Clausen Bowman (all the way from Ore- 
gon! ) , Eleanor Humphrey, Preble Borden 
Gruchy and Ronnie Cornell Cannon. 

Saturday, June 6, 1959, began as a beauti- 
ful New England summer day — cool but 
sunny, altogether auspicious for the excite- 
ment of 30th Reunion for the Class of 1929. 
Not that '29 was the only reuning class, you 
understand, but for us all the others were 
a part of the delightful background. The 
house now known as Plummer Library is the 
center of alumnae activities and on this day 
it was buzzing. It was here that all return- 
ing alumnae gathered to register, pick up 
luncheon tickets, drink coffee and find each 
other. 

You can imagine the fun when all of 
these caught sight of one another: those of 
the evening before plus Zip Daggett Wilson, 
Leora (Tiny) Adams Neal, Margaret Allen, 
Betty Barker Abondalo, Mary Barton Libby, 
Conkie Chalmers Harlow (and daughter 
Dee), Dorothy Cole MacRae, Olive French 
Whitehead, Barbara Goodell Trott, Dorothy 
Hayward Sutherland, Marion Kingdon Far- 
num, Mary Korper Steele, Betty Lyman 
Zsiga ( and genial doctor-husband ) , Verta 
MacLeod Haines, Mydie Page Haven, Midge 
Schaller Schoonmaker, Betty Wells Tuttle 
and Irene Murray Pettapiece (a lively pair, 
as always ) , Maudie Williams Gittleson, 
Barbara Wilson Horton, Esther Angel 
Frank, Peg Ward Swanson and a little later, 
Magee Wethern. 

The total alumnae gathered for a brief 
and well-ordered meeting in The Science 
Building — one of the newest additions to

the campus. The most exciting news we 
learned there was that Miss Constance Black- 
stock, after many years in India, will return 
to Lasell as a resident head in September 
'59- Miss Blackstock was present with her 
50th Reunion group at the Alumnae meeting 
and it was truly wonderful to see her again. 

Luncheon was served picnic style. Tables 
were set up under a huge white tent, but 
the '29ers picked up box-lunches and chairs 
and took to the lawn under some of the 
same fine big trees you may remember. This 
was where we were for the reunion group 
picture-taking, and this was where we were 
when the rain started! The rain was the one 
and only disappointment of the day for it 
prevented the walking tour of the campus 
to see the new buildings and revisit the old 
ones. Many of us missed the President's re- 
ception too — we hurried to cars as soon as 
we could and returned to Wellesley. 

A dozen or more gathered at Harry's and 
had the most fun reading about the rest of 
you from the returned questionnaires. In- 
cidentally, these have since been summarized 
and filed for future reunions. There was 
much conversation, much looking at old and 
new photographs, and much, MUCH of the 
"what do you know about so-and-so" talk. 

This continued with the larger group at 
the sherry party given by Harry Hewins 
Sanderson, Verta MacLeod Haines, Marion 
Kingdon Farnum and Ronnie Cornell Can- 
non at Ronnie's home. Those of you who 
were at the 25 th remember the lovely open 
house at Ronnie's — well, you just know 
the delightful occasion this party was. The 
rain, which continued, did not matter very 
much. 

The beautiful climax to a wonderful day 
was at Zip's spacious new home — buffet 
supper. Here we not only ate elegantly and 
visited more, but found time to sing old 
songs with Zip at the organ, and have a 
brief, informal class meeting. Magee told us 
a little of the 1959 Lasell, but mostly we 
talked about how very much we missed each 
of you who could not come. We even started 
then and there to plan for 1964 — hoping 
to see more '29ers. 

This was Our Day — and you can see that 
the girls who arranged it gave us one to 
remember. I am convinced that Lasell's Class 
of 1929 is the most special and that its 
returning members become more appealing 
and attractive with each reunion. Do plan 
to be at the next one. 

Love and best wishes to each of you, al- 
ways,

Other News: In mid- August Harriet Holt 
Buker requested a transcript of her Lasell 
work and added: "We have just returned 
from a month in Santa Barbara and Ventura, 
California. Delightfully cool there — slept 
under two blankets each nite — and the New 
Jersey humidity seems unbearable now. A 
recent letter from Verta (MacLeod Haines) 
made me wish I had been with the Reunion- 
ers, but I was in the midst of graduation 
activities. Requests for programs by my 
a cappella choir have been coming in all 
summer — we can do only a few concerts 
outside of school and it is frustrating to 
choose." 

The Class extends sympathy to Marion 
Kingdon Farnum, whose father Mr. Fred 
Kindon, passed away in August. Mr. King- 
don was the grandfather of Deborah Farnum 
Varney '56.

Mrs. Richard F. Murray 

(Corinne Cowdrey) , Assistant 

748 Webster St., Needham, Mass. 

Phyllis Jensen Swenson and Corinne 
Cowdrey Murray enjoyed a delightful visit 
with Elsie Moore Johnson in Wakefield, 
N. H. Phyllis contributed a clipping from 
the Rochester (N.H.) Courier and we quote 
in part: 

"Gage Hill Farm, the home of a family 
of farmer-lawyers and teachers for over a 
century, has opened its doors and ancient 
sliding shutters for year-round living. 
Herbert and Elsie Johnson, the present 
owners, have completed the restoration on 
which they have devotedly worked week ends 
and vacations for fourteen years, and have 
come to live on their much-loved hilltop. 
Both of them are connoisseurs of antiques 
and have been collectors for years. Now that 
Mr. Johnson has retired as a representative of 
the Upjohn Company, they have opened an 
antique shop in the long shed, which they 
have pine panelled. Fine old china, glass- 
ware, lamps, woodenware, furniture, braided 
rugs, their own handiwork, make an alluring 
display for the antique lover and collector. 

"Mrs. Johnson has exceptional ability as 
a decorator, and Mr. Johnson excels in re- 
finishing woodwork and furniture. All the 
work of restoration and redecoration, even 
the pine-panelling, they have done them- 
selves. They have salvaged and made use of 
everything. Even the rustic sign, 'Gage Hill 
Farm,' hung on the gnarled bole of the huge 
maple by the driveway is a facsimile of the 
penmanship in a Gage account book.

"Now, with the Johnson's own fine an- 
tique furnishings, the spacious rooms are a 
delight to see. The house is replete with the 
beautiful simplicity of by-gone days. 

"Wakefield is fortunate in having Her- 
bert and Elsie Johnson as permanent resi- 
dents. Mr. Johnson is a Past Master of the 
Burlington (Vt.) Lodge. Mrs. Johnson has 
held office in the Eastern Star, is past presi- 
dent oi the Burlington Woman's Club, also 
of the Northwest District of the Federated 
Women's Clubs of Vermont. She is known 
for her delightful talks on cooking, especial- 
ly for her program, 'Yesterday's Christmas 
Dinner,' in which she illustrated with old- 
time kitchen gadgets how the housewife of 
a hundred years ago prepared for the holiday. 
She has been an active member of the Bur- 
lington Garden Club. Both Mr. and Mrs. 
Johnson are members of the Wakefield- 
Brookfield Historical Society and are inter- 
ested in church activities." 

From Joan Collier Cooper: "The past year 
has been a sad one for us as both my mother 
and brother passed away. Our daughter, 
Carolyn, will attend Framingham State 
Teachers College in September. My hus- 
band is now chief electrician at the Revere 
Sugar Refinery in Boston. Looking forward 
to 30th Reunion."

Our 25th Reunion was a very enjoyable 
affair with twenty-three classmates on hand 
for the day, Saturday, June 6, 1959. There 
is much pleasure in renewing old friendships 



and catching up on all the news, and we 
all wished more of you had been with us. 
We first met for Morning Coffee at Plummer 
Library and talk flowed so fast and with such 
enthusiasm we had to be called and reminded 
it was time for the picnic luncheon. 

The only business transacted at our gather- 
ing in the Alumnae Lounge was the informal 
election of Dorothy Secord Garon as Class 
Secretary to fill the vacancy created by the 
resignation of Roberta Davis Massey. Helen 
Gibbs Studley will replace Carol Morehouse 
Jones as Class Agent. 

Among the first to arrive was Phyllis At- 
kinson Stone — lovely as ever — and Phyl 
reported she will soon move to Topsfield. 
Barbara Blaisdell White came from Ver- 
mont — a new address : 62 Liberty St., Mont- 
pelier. Beepy's daughter Cynthia is 13, and 
Stephen, 10. Emily Cleaves Martin arrived 
with her 11 -year-old daughter Pamela. Emmy 
and her husband have a clock business. It 
was good to see Virginia Collins Lorentzen, 
now at home in Wollaston. Lucinda Cum- 
mings Carr keeps busy with the usual home- 
maker duties and her two sons, Wendell and 
Rodney. Wendell has completed his first year 
at U.V.M. and will work at Nantucket this 
summer. 

Frances Day Meyers drove from Snyder, 
New York, and combined the reunion trip 
with a visit to her parents who still live in 
this area. Fran has three sons and a daugh- 
ter. Edith Downey is curator of education 
at the Children's Museum in Hartford. She 
is working for her master's degree in edu- 
cation at the University of Hartford — via 
the night school route. 

Helen Gibbs Studley lives in an "out-of- 
this-world" ranch house in Needham with 
her husband and two children, Lee and Judy. 
To Helen goes our thanks for her assistance 
with the reunion and her willingness to serve 
as class agent. Jean Gilbert Carley was as 
peppy as during school days. Jean's son 
Gilbert is 19 and Susan, 17- 

Helen Hall Streeter came with Angelita 
Santiago Gebelein '33 and it was wonderful 
to see them both. Jane Jensen Bailey was 
accompanied by her Polly Jane, who attends 
Dana Hall, and Alice Schrade VanderVoort 
came with daughter, Mary Alice. Alice has 
two sons, Peter 17, and John, 10. Marjorie 
Jones Hopkins had her two daughters, Susan 
and Judith, with her. Midge, who also has 
a son Stephen, is a busy housewife and finds 
time too for extra work — "flower arranging 
for a local hotel." 

Mabelle Hickcox Camp is the busy mother 
of thirteen-year-old Cynthia, and Myrtle 
Marshall Cochrane has one daughter, Karen. 
On hand too was Bettina Potter Janse — 
looking not a whit older than in 1934. Her 
Ted is 23 and Sandra, 22.

1934's Corner 



Dorothy Secord Garon, a shadow of her 
former self, was present with all the wit and 
humor of old. She, as the mother of three 
boys, is busy as "chauffeur, cleaning woman, 
washer woman, nurse — all under the head- 
ing of housewife." Dot has many outside 
activities — church, P.T.A. and Y. Muriel 
Thacker Drury came with her husband, son 
and daughter from Schenectady. Lillian 
Thrasher Rowell, a kindergarten teacher, 
also has three children — George, 20, Caro- 
line, 17, and Herbert, 10. 

Annabeth Williams Bergen drove from 
Buffalo on Friday with Fran Day Meyers and 
spent the weekend on campus. Annabeth's 
former roommate, Sally Swanson Dahlberg 
'35, joined us for luncheon. Sally was ac- 
companied by her husband and daughter, 
who plans on Lasell in the near future. 

Beth Snow Bissett is placement counselor 
for the Burton Personnel Service in Boston. 

And — there was Me — Ada May Bart- 
lett Degree. My husband and I have three 
sons — Bob, Jr., now in the Army, Stephen, 
a high school junior, and Peter is in the first 
year of junior high. Peter is active in a Fife 
and Drum Corps and our summers are busy 
attending meets and parades. 

It was suggested that a directory of our 
classmates be made available to all who wish 
them. Please send your request for same 
to me. 

"Regrets" came from: Barbara Beers 
Hodgson, who had to cancel at the last 
minute. Barbara's older daughter is labora- 
tory technician at Phillips Andover, son 
James is 11 and Donna Lou, 7. Capt. Hodg- 
son is assistant chief of staff of Naval Re- 
serves in Boston. 

Bettina Cook Kalback lives in California 
with her husband and three children, David, 
Jean and Paul. Mabel Crowe Sias is "busy 
keeping up with two teenagers." 



Roberta Davis Massey sent greetings and 
love to all. Sincere thanks from all of us to 
Bobbie for her twenty-five year's service as 
class secretary. 

Dell Masterjohn, a technician for the 
Johns Manville Corp., was enjoying a Cali- 
fornia vacation. Carol Morehouse Jones was 
busy packing the family for the move to 
Rochester, N. Y., and Natalie North Hinch- 
liffe wrote: "Had been looking forward to 
Reunion, but that is the graduation day at 
Thayer Academy and our older son is a mem- 
ber of the senior class. For the past eight 
years I have been studying pottery and now 
have the beginnings of my own studio — a 
kiln and a wheel — and I love it. Inciden- 
tally, my son's best girl enters Lasell in Sep- 
tember so I may be back for a visit after all." 

Virginia Ripley Lent was in the throes of 
house hunting and added: "P.T.A. and the 
Girl Scouts keep me busy. Our girls are 
growing up fast — Karen is 12 and going 
into the 8th grade, and Lois Ann is 10. Bar- 
bara Hinckley Meyer sent a new address — 
407 Juniper Lane, Cheshire, Conn. — and 
reports she has a son, Peter, and two daugh- 
ters, Emily and Deborah. Nina Keppler 
Dusenbury lives in Wellesley with her two 
children, James and Mildred. Barbara Kerr 
Marshman's son Bruce is 19 and daughter 
Linda, 16. Bernice Loveland Megargel has 
two sons, Wayne, 12, and Bruce, 10. 

Mary Fitch Huggett's plans were cancelled 
and Mary wrote: "Please give my love to 
everyone. Shall miss being with you all. We 
enjoy the average family activities in a small 
suburb. Anne was married early in April 
and is now living nearby in Pittsburgh. Jim 
is twelve, finishing the 7th grade and has his 
first paper route. Charlie is 10 and active 
in everything. I have the usual housewife 
chores, cub scouts and my own charitable 
organizations to keep me busy."

"Margaret was born and educated in 
Derby, attending St. Mary's Grammar School 
and Derby High. Her ambition at this time 
was to become a fashion designer, and she 
enrolled at Lasell Junior College, graduating

ing this period did counseling work at their 
camps during summer vacations. 

"When America began to mobilize its de- 
fenses against the Axis powers, Margaret be- 
came a member of the Ansonia Draft Board. 
In 1943, Margaret joined the WAVES and 
took 'boot' training at Hunter College. She 
attended Yeoman's School at Oklahoma 
A. & M., and upon completion was trans- 
ferred to Sampson, New York, where she 
spent the remainder of her enlistment. Her

"Margaret was discharged in 1946, began 
working for Yale University in a clerical ca- 
pacity and later worked for the Veterans 
Administration in New Haven. Shortly after 
her discharge from the service, Margaret 
joined the American Legion. She was made 
Adjutant and served in this capacity until 
1951. She was elected Commander of the 
John H. Collins Post and was the first and 
only woman to be so honored. The next year 
at the. State American Legion Convention she 
was elected to serve as vice-commander for 
women in the state. Subsequently she was

Leona will enter junior high and be at home

15th REUNION 

We are starting off the next five years 
with two new secretaries — Barbara Bresette 
Greene — in a weak moment — agreed to 
be secretary, and Suzanne Lange Riddle- 
moser — bless her — said she would assist. 
Please do take time to send a word or two 
occasionally — we all just love News. 

June the sixth dawned bright and clear — 
nary a cloud in the morning sky, tho' plenty 
brewed during the course of the day. We 
arrived at Lasell about ten (it looks more 
beautiful than you would even remember) , 
registered and coffee'd at Plummer, tacked 
the 1944 Banner on a tree and were open 
for business. (Incidentally, several of us still 
have our miniature class banners — do you? 
Barbie Goodwin Flint even has her Fresh- 
man cap.) Ginny Wolfe Perkins and her 
older daughter, Sharon, and Peg Portmore 
Scheuerman were the first to arrive, but 
quickly followed by: Evelyn Allen Clune, 
Jean "Soupie" Campbell, Libby Burpee 
Crooker, Barbara Bresette Greene, Betsey 
Maynard Staples, Clio Lupo Murphy, Sue 
Lange Riddlemoser, Freda Reck Dubin, 
Lorrayne Hron Hulton, Betty Rhind Lee, 
Claire McCreery Simmons, Dottie Nicker- 
son Tehan, Joan Mills Barry, Dot Tobin 
Staffier, Barbara Staples Virgie, Vivian 
Snow Ohlhorst, Ruth Blaisdell Simmons, 
Marge Wing Berry, Betty Walsh Schwartz 
x-'44, Imogene Williams Genewich and 
Katie Cogswell Darnton. 

Several brought children — or at least 
some of the children. Freda Reck Dubin 



was accompanied by Ben, Lynnie, 10, and 
Bobbie, 6. Ben was the only husband present 
but bore up beautifully. Lorrayne Hron 
Hulton came with her ten-year-old Susan, 
Betty Rhind Lee had Wendy, 11, and Katie 
Cogswell Darnton brought Barbie. Margie 
Wing Berry's two daughters were dressed 
alike, but "Soupie" Campbell didn't bring 
a single gal — as Girl Scout Director of 
Manchester, Connecticut, "Soupie" claims 
1800. 

As we lunched under the trees on the 
Recreation Field, the first black cloud loomed 
overhead. We thought only the happiest of 
thoughts as the sky grew darker, and a few 
stalwart souls finished their lunches in the 
rain — for rain it did. 

Not nearly as many as expected gathered 
at The Pillars for dinner for by that time 
the rains came in earnest. Priscilla Lincoln 
joined us there. 

We enjoyed reading the questionnaires and 
share some of them with you. Each and every 
one who did not come to Reunion was really 
missed — and do plan now for our 20th. 
It was a happy, happy day and June 1944 
did not seem so far in the past. As Barbie 
Bresette Greene commented: "How can this 
possibly be our 15th Reunion — I am still 
so young and beautiful." 

Gathered from the Questionnaires: 

Dorothy Annino Iseman: assistant man- 
ager of a card and gift shop. 

Evelyn Allen Clune: medical secretary to 
her doctor-husband, and takes care of Bar- 
bara Jane, 12, James, 9, and Laurie, 4. 

Edna Barker Nelson: promises to be with 
us in 1964. The Nelsons have David, 7, 
and Paul, 3. 

Barbara Bresette Greene: entertained us 
all in her own inimitable way. Has added 
the class secretarial duties to her regular

Diane is ten and Joan soon has her eighth

from Brown University. Is a Girl Scout 
Director. 

Diane Carbulon Poulos: sent greetings 
from Wilmington, Delaware. Daughters Pa- 
trice and Alicia are six and three, respectively. 

Martha Clark Corson x-'44: everyone was 
so pleased to have her good news. Her two 
sons are both redheads — Clark, the older, 
now stands 6'2" and Craig is the local grade 
school "giant." Marty reported a recent visit 
with Sue Blackinton Smith x-'44. 

June Carew Mange: so wanted to come, 
but just couldn't manage to get away. Vir- 
ginia Anne is ten years old.

now living at 3370 Gunston Road, Alexan- 
dria, Va., and "enjoying the Washington

celebrated his second birthday in July." 

The headlines of a feature story in the 
May 18th edition of the Worcester (Mass.) 
Gazette read: "Mother Puts Four to Bed, 
Then Studies for Degree." The newspaper 
account continues: "When graduation time 
rolls around next month, the majority of 
college students all over the country will be 
going home to mother and dad — at least 
temporarily. At Annhurst College in South 
Woodstock (Conn.) there will be one nota- 
ble exception. When Mrs. Irene (Tomasek) 
Charbonneau receives her Bachelor of Sci- 
ence degree June 3d, she will be coming 
home to a lively foursome: Philip, 10, 
Glenn, 8, Joy, 7, and Jay, 4 — her children. 
If anyone is wondering how a young house- 
wife and mother of four managed to accom- 
plish this, there is even more cause for 
wonder at the excellent job Mrs. Charbon- 
neau has done on both fronts. At Annhurst, 
she has been on the dean's list consistently. 
At home, she has arranged her schedule so 
that not only does the work get done, but 



up until this last semester, she has always 
been home when the children arrived from 
school. 

"In 1947 she married Philip Charbonneau, 
Jr. and they settled in Grosvenor Dale, where 
Philip is the postmaster. The next six years, 
which saw the births of Philip III, Glen, 
Joy and Jay, were a little too busy for much 
outside activity. After Jay's birth, she began 
to take an evening course in philosophy at 
Annhurst, one evening a week, which she 
continued for three years. Her love for 
this and her admiration for the school started 
the longing to complete the requirements 
for her bachelor's degree. 

"Two years ago, she began the day courses, 
majoring in accounting, minoring in social 
studies. Since then, she has made the eight- 
mile drive daily, spending an average of 
three hours a day in class." 

Irene has been appointed to the faculty of 
the Webster High School for the year 1959-

June 6th was a delightful day at Lasell, 
and our thanks to Libby and Straw for plan- 
ning a terrific Tenth Reunion. Seventy-three 
'49-ers registered, and as we checked in at 
Plummer Library, we challenged (over the 
coffee cups) the new arrivals for names and 



LASELL LEAVES

faces. Must say everyone looked chic — 
maybe a bit rounder in places and some a 
bit more subdued, but not one a bit older. 

At the annual meeting of Lasell Alumnae, 
Inc., at Wass Hall (a perfectly beautiful new 
Science Building) our own Libby Harring- 
ton Logan was introduced as the new Presi- 
dent. This is a well-deserved honor for 
Libby and we all wish her well. Following 
a most pleasant luncheon (under a tremen- 
dous tent on the Recreation Field ) , Straw 
presided over a class meeting. We discussed 
ideas in regard to a memorial for P. L. 
Anderson Phypers, first deceased member 
of '49. It was voted that a note be sent to 
each girl in the class asking for suggestions. 
Reference books for the library was one sug- 
gestion made at the Reunion meeting. Straw, 
as class agent, stressed the growing im- 
portance of the Alumnae Fund at Lasell 
and reported only 36% of the Class of 1949 
contributed in the current year's drive. Do 
try to dig deeper and send a check this year. 

As evidenced by the heading of our col- 
umn, we also elected new class secretaries. 
Kay, Didge and I hope we can do as well as 
our predecessors. Please do keep the news 
coming. 

"Fun" Prizes were then awarded to Long 
Distance Travelers: Barbara Berry Roberts 
(Nebraska), Kay Poore Hamel (Michigan), 
Evie Frye White (Indiana) , Nat Hall Camp- 
bell (North Carolina) and Carolyn Clark 
Thomas (Virginia). Most Children: Straw 
Lawson Donahue, four. Most Recent Mar- 
riage: Kathleen Mahoney Schofield, January 



31, 1959. Changed the Most: Prilly Randall 
Hurter and Carol Dunn Burns. Changed the 
Least: Paulie Quilty Connolly. 

Libby's daughter, Pamela Logan, was 
crown bearer for the June Queen at the 
Crow's Nest ceremony, and we did enjoy 
the President's Reception for Alumnae and 
faculty. It was great fun to see Miss Jean 
Watt, our class advisor, and many other 
faculty friends. However, for most of us it 
was sad to say goodbye to President and 
Mrs. Wass, and difficult to find the proper 
words to express our thanks to them for the 
years of dedication to Lasell. Mr. Wass not 
only undertook a successful building pro- 
gram, but has worked to attract outstanding 
faculty and improve our college scholastically. 
We '49-ers will miss him. 

Saturday evening forty of us, "stag" or with 
our spouse, joined again for cocktails and 
dinner at The Meadows. All in all we had 
a great fun day together with the friends 
with whom we had shared so much in those 
two short years, and whom we seldom see 
because of distance, jobs, husbands, children 
or a hundred other reasons. In true spirit, 
we departed making mad plans for "we must 
get together often between now and 1964." 
Let's hope that we do — at least, through 
the news in the LEAVES. 

Present at Reunion were: Nat Hall Camp- 
bell, Mary Shoemaker Budge, Polly Don- 
aldson Converse, Marty Hurd Davenport, 
Nancy Curtis Grellier, Betty Ann Felker 
Hancock, Carol Cedergren Henrickson, 
Beverly Wallace Markey, Ann Hollett

While the threadbare failures, addresses

Understandably stay away. 
Which limits attendance, year after year, 
As anyone plainly can see, 
To the middling, the local, the slightly 

queer — 
To my friends, that is, and to me.

DEDICATION OF NEW DORMITORY 







In brief but impressive ceremonies 
on Thursday, November 5, 1959, 
Lasell's new dormitory officially be- 
came Ordway Hall as its cornerstone, 
filled with mementoes of the campus 
in 1959 was firmly cemented into 
place. 

Following the invocation by the 
Reverend Frederick W. Rapp, Dr. 
Packard announced the decision of the 
Board of Trustees to honor Mr. Earl 
H. Ordway's fifty years of service to 
the college by naming the new struc- 
ture after him. After a brief outline 
of Mr. Ordway's long association with 
this campus, Dr. Packard introduced 
representatives of various branches of 
the current Lasell family, each of 
whom placed some relevant document 
in the copper box for permanent 
preservation within the cornerstone. 

These included Priscilla Alden 
Wolfe '19, chairman of the Board 
of Trustees, for the Trustees; Elizabeth 
Harrington Logan '49, president of 
Lasell Alumnae, Inc., for the alumnae; 
Helen L. Beede '21, college recorder, 
for the Lasell Corporation; Mrs. 
Clarissa Bassett, instructor in science, 
for the faculty; and Linda Chiara- 
monte, vice-president of the Executive 
Council, for the student body. Final 
contribution was by Dr. Packard, who 
dropped into the container a small 
collection of clippings covering cur- 
rent and recent events in Lasell his- 
tory. 



Mr. Ordway, half-brother of Lasell's 
late president emeritus, Dr. Guy M. 
Winslow, was graduated from the Uni- 
versity of Vermont in 1909, by which 
institution he was also awarded mem- 
bership in Phi Beta Kappa the sames 
year. He came to the college in 1911 
as instructor in physics and house 
planning. Ultimately he took over 
entire supervision of Lasell's buildings 
and grounds. In 1945 he was elected 
to the Board of Trustees, where hel 
has served on the Finance Committee 
and Executive Board. 

Mr. Ordway was accompanied at 
the dedication ceremony by Mrs. Ord- 
way, his son David, and daughter, 
Barbara Ordway Brewer '35. 

The new dormitory, a modification 
of the style of the Williamsburg resto- 
rations, is located on Maple Street. 
The building houses twenty-seven stu- 
dents on three floors, all rooms being 
complete with adjoining baths. The 
large living room is finished in Wil- 
liamsburg colors and furnished with 
matching period furniture, the gift of 
Lasell Alumnae, Inc. Automatic laun- 
dry facilities have been incorporated 
for the use of the residents, as well as 
a downstairs kitchen. All rooms are 
connected with a private telephone in- 
tercom system and the building is pro- 
tected by a complete fire alarm system. 

Mrs. Agnes Garland, mother of 
Janet Garland Wilson '46, is the resi- 
dent head of Ordway Hall.

ON THE CAMPUS . . . 

Dr. and Mrs. Packard were hosts to 
more than 300 Auburndale neighbors 
and friends, local alumnae and college 
trustees at a tea and open house on 
Sunday afternoon, December 6th. In 
view of the considerable community 
interest in the newest additions to the 
campus, Converse and Ordway Houses 
were included in the festivities, as well 
as "The White House," where refresh- 
ments were served. Members of col- 
lege government and residents of the 
two new dormitories assisted in guid- 
ing the guests within the buildings 
and from one part of the campus to 
the other. 

Bernard Peiffer, recognized as the 
greatest jazz pianist in Europe today, 
opened the Lasell Concert Series in 
Winslow Hall on Monday evening, 
November 23d. French-born and 
trained Peiffer has appeared for the 
past two years at the Newport Jazz 
Festival. The second of two concerts 
scheduled for the current year will offer 
Betty Allen, soloist with the Boston 
Symphony, the New York Philhar- 
monic and the Berlin Philharmonic 
orchestras. Arrangements have been 
made for an April appearance of the 
gifted mezzo-soprano. 

The centennial year of the publica- 
tion of Charles Darwin's "The Origin 
of Species" was commemorated twice 
at Lasell during the first week of No- 
vember. Prof. Edwin P. Booth of 
Boston University's School of The- 
ology was guest speaker at an all-col- 
lege chapel service at Winslow Hall 
on November 2d, when he discussed 
the details of Darwin's biography. 
Later in the same week, Dr. Packard 
opened the current series of lectures 
sponsored by the Adult Education 
program of the Auburndale Congre- 
gational Church with his talk on 
"Darwinism." 



FACULTY AND 
ADMINISTRATION . . . 

Former trustee Winslow R. Howland 
has been honored by a memorial 
trophy to be awarded annually to a 
member of the Bowdoin College var- 
sity football team. A member of Bow- 
doin's 1959 eleven will be the first 
recipient of the new trophy, known as 
the Winslow R. Howland Football 
Trophy, presented to the college by 
friends and 1929 classmates. Mr. How-

retarial science since 1954, is the au- 
thor of an article appearing in the

tailing Curriculum" is based on a re- 
search project Mrs. Manghue used in 
partial fulfillment of the requirements 
for her M.A. degree at Teachers Col- 
lege, Columbia University. 

In September Jeanne B. Cousins 
(Fac. 1945- ) represented Mr. Har-

Good news from Florida indicates that 
Sue Tiffany is better now than she has 
been for a long time. Sorry not to have 
visited with her this fall when she was at 
Lasell for the annual Trustees' Meeting, 
but did enjoy the long telephone chat. 
Evelina Perkins was in Auburndale for the 
same meeting for "Perky" is a member of 
the Lasell Corporation. 

October brought a fine letter from Bess 
Emerine, who had just forwarded our Class 
Letter to Ada Patterson. Ada, our class 
traveller, recently returned from a South 
Pacific cruise which included Australia, 
New Zealand, Tahiti, Fiji, Samoa and 
Hawaii. During the summer Bess had seen 
Peg Bauman, Marion Lerch Mehle '16 — 
now a Pasadena resident — and Lydia 
Rich Gray x-'19 of Chicago. Bess is still 
too busy with welfare work to be certain 
about Reunion in June, but is hoping. 
That applies to Florence Evans Valpey and 
Peg Bauman also. Definitely coming to cel- 
ebrate our 45th are Gladys Wilkes Mc- 
Cutchen and Ada Patterson. 

Frances Johnson Edwards forwarded a 
recent photo of her daughter, Nancy Ann, 
who was graduated from Vassar in 1950, 
and received her Ph.D. in political science

to inspect Lydia's many varieties of or-

with her.

Florence Merritt Baker's new address is 
Box 28, R. R. #2, South Portland, Maine. 

Helen M. Robson, president of the Phil- 
adelphia-South Jersey Lasell Club, com- 
ments: "The account of class reunions in 
the LEAVES made me very sad to think I 
missed the 35th. Lasell Alumnae Inc. has 
achieved so many worthwhile projects that 
I am proud to be a member."

(Helen Black), Co-Secretary 

31 Van Brunt Ave., Dedham, Mass. 

Mrs. George A. Jenkins 

(Barbara Cushing), Co-Secretary 

3 Kent St., Concord, N. H. 

The beginning of your self-appointed 
committee's efforts to plan 1925's 35th Re- 
union took place on October 28th when 
Helen McNab Willand, Martha Fish 
Holmes, Martha Wilcox Hills and Helen 
Black Sprague met for luncheon, signed 
and mailed the first Questionnaires to our 
classmates. The response to the letter has 
been excellent, but there are still many 
who have not answered. Please do ! 

The following have indicated their hope 
to attend Reunion on June 11, I960: Ruth 
Shepard Parmenter, Ethel Clow Black, 
Estelle Jenney, Helen Wahlquist Wolcott, 
Dorothy Keeler Stewart, Blanche Avery, 
Mildred Whyte Goddard and Peg Gordon 
Ferguson. The latter two sent Helen Mc- 
Nab Willand addresses for some of our 
"Lost" members. Mildred reports that her 
two sons are married, and Peg's daughter, 
Nancy, who graduated from Lasell in 1959, 
was married in early September. 

Lucile Hopkins Willenbrok lives in 
Scarsdale, N. Y., and adds: "Just near 
enough to New York City to see all the 
shows and shops — and love it." 

One of our most loyal x-'25ers is Claire 
Stritzinger Daller of Norristown, Penna. 
She would like to join us in June, but will 
not be able to make it because of her teach- 
ing duties in Upper Merion. Claire's son 
is a senior at Brown. She also sent a con- 
tribution for the Alumnae Fund — in- 
cidentally, these questionnaires provide a 
fine opportunity to do your little share. 
And we shall be most happy to forward 
the checks to the college. 

Ruth Shepard Parmenter lives in Shrews- 
bury, Mass. and her oldest daughter, Janet, 
Lasell '56, was married in September. 
Martha is attending college in Pennsyl- 
vania and . the youngest daughter, Linda, 
is in high school. Dorothy Keeler Stewart 



has been working in the I.B.M. Department 
of Houghton Mifflin, Publishers for the 
past five years. The Stewarts enjoyed a 
Florida vacation last spring and their 
usual September holiday saw them in 
Maine. 

Blanche Avery hopes to be in Auburn- 
dale in June, but there could be a "con- 
flict" due to her teaching schedule in 
Poughkeepsie, N. Y. Ethel Clow Black and 
husband own and operate Black's Paper 
Store and Gift Shop in Wolfeboro, N. H. 
She writes: "In my spare time I am sec- 
retary of the Board of Trustees for Hug- 
gins Hospital, also of the Executive Com- 
mittee and Chairman of the Public Health 
Nursing Committee. Not too many dull 
moments." 

From Granby, Connecticut, Helen Wahl- 
quist Wolcott writes: "My husband is a 
public accountant and tax consultant, and 
also has a real estate business. I had been 
working part time as a roving secretary 
for my old-time employer, National Fire 
Insurance Company, but I resigned and am 
now full-time secretary for my husband. 
About a year ago I started my own collec- 
tion agency, The Granby Collection 
Agency, for we had many clients who de- 
sired assistance in collecting back bills. 
We have our office right here at home and 
I find little time for any outside activities." 

Estelle Jenney sent a newsy little note 
from Cambridge: "Am still at my longtime 
job with Simplex Wire and Cable Com- 
pany. My last summer's jaunt took me to 
the Canadian Rockies — Banff, Lake 
Louise, and Jasper Park (really breathtak- 
ing) — then on to Vancouver, Victoria, 
Seattle, Mt. Rainier National Park and 
San Francisco. The last three days I spent 
in Carmel on the ruggedly beautiful Mon- 
terey Peninsula, where California really 
lived up to its sunny reputation. It was 
very pleasant to spend one of these days- 
with Ruth Buffington, and to see her love- 
ly home, garden, studio and fine water col- 
ors. Ruth and her housemate took me on 
a drive down the spectacular coastline 
route (which you may have seen pictured 
in a recent issue of The National Geo- 
graphic) as far as the Big Sur, where we 
had a delicious and chatty lunch on the 
patio of the Big Sur Lodge. Must concede 
that California has something special, and 
perhaps that is where I shall go to 'sit in 
the sun and dream' when my rocking chair 
days come along." 

We will keep you posted on plans for 
Reunion and please make a real effort to 
join us in Auburndale on June 11th.

1926 

Mrs. Elmer J. Bloom 
(Mariesta Howland), Secretary 

415 West Crestwood Drive, Peoria, 111. 

Thanks to Dode Schumaker Walthers, 
who heeded my recent lament that "half 
the enthralling journeys never get recorded 
here," there comes the news that Ede Jen- 
sen White took a breather from her busy 
profession of florist and left for Europe 
at August's end. Ede spent a week in 
scenic Norway, then two delightful weeks 
in Denmark with relatives, and on to a 
tour-group in London. From Venice she 
wrote Dode, "Am gradually working south 
in search of warm weather" and she must 
have found the warm weather, for her four 
months' wanderings did not confine her to 
Europe and she wrote later from Tangier, 
"All this seems a long way from home, 
with the Arabs in fezzes and their women 
wrapped in veils." 

Dode herself has known both joy and 
sorrow — joy in her year-old granddaugh- 
ter, Karen, and sorrow in the loss, Septem- 
ber 11, of her beloved mother. Mrs. Schu- 
maker, whom '26 will remember as so 
bright and charming, had been a helpless 
invalid for the past fifteen years. 

Another — and inveterate — "tripper" 
is our Margaret Anderson Gage. Andy's 
summer Central American trip led her by 
plane from San Jose to Palmer where the 
Gages were shown "one half" of the 
bridge which is the last link in the Pan 
American Highway, and to be finished in 
a year. Of Golfito (next stop) Andy wrote: 
"This was one of the most outstanding, 
exciting and interesting days of our entire 
lives." (Quite a statement from 1926's 
"globe trotter" !) Her reason: "We toured 
for three hours back into the banana fields 
and watched the cutting, lifting and racking 
onto the backs of donkeys who brought the 
banana loads right to the water's edge of 
the beautiful bay ... It was an incredible 
sight to see the boats loaded ! As each man 
loaded with bananas trots past the man 
stationed at the hold of the ship, he 
whacks off with a hugh machete the stem 
on each end of the bunches — and we are 
told sometimes a man doesn't get his arm 
in far enough and THAT gets sliced off 
too !" The United Fruit boat had an all- 
Dutch crew and its course followed the 
lovely coastline of Mexico, then on up to 
California to bring the Gages home. Dur- 
ing her absence Andy had been made a 
grandmother — her daughter Linda gave 
birth to a baby girl, Patricia, in late July. 
She now reports her usual brimming fall 
schedule — not only is she continuing her 
teaching, but is taking two courses at Sac- 
ramento College — an Audio-Visual class 




Dorothy Aseltine Wadsworth '26 and 

Family. Suzanne, second from right, is 

a member of the Class of 1956 

and one on United States Government. 

And the last travel report came from 
Anita Krakauer Doerr the night before she 
and her husband left for their six weeks' 
European sojourn. Her plans (beside the 
Geneva visit with her sister) included Paris, 
Aix-les-Bains, the Italian Lakes, Munich, 
Innsbruck, Salzburg, Vienna and the 
Riviera. 

How pleasant it was to hear from Elinor 
("Steve") Stevens Stockman, who wrote 
that she had the keen pleasure of motoring 
her daughter Marguerite to Lasell, there 
to enter the Class of 1961 — and added, 
"Already she loves it!" After the momen- 
tous matriculation, "Steve" and her hus- 
band went on into Boston and from there 
she chatted by telephone with her former 
roommate, Liz Forgie Hay x-'26, who lives 
in Braintree. Steve adds: "But I ought to 
'back up' to the summer of 1958 when we 
had a most pleasant call at Lasell to choose 
curriculum and a room in delightful Wood- 
land. We had driven up from our vacation 
spot in Eastham, Cape Cod, where we were 
staying at a cottage across the pond from 
those owned by Kay Braithwaite Wood- 
worth '29. I had read in the Leaves 
about the Woodworths' purchase of Nauset 
Haven Cottages and so I dropped in to 
see Kay one day and got the Lasell news. 

"Last November when we celebrated our 
25th wedding anniversary, Audrey Jackson 
Dade x-'26 was one of our guests at Open 
House and 'twas good to see her again. 
Mabel Michell Pyott x-'26 of Fort Lauder- 
dale, Fla., was very ill all last winter, but 
is greatly improved now. She hopes to 
come north next summer and will spend 
some time with me when she arrives." 
Steve (bless her!) adds that she timed her 
letter for October because she noticed I

asked for some news BEFORE Christmas ! 
(Go all of you and do likewise.) 

Doing exactly that was Ginnie Amos 
Farrington, whose holiday screed began, in 
the old A-Mouse tradition of wit: "After 
nary a line from me in so long a time, I 
should not be surprised to read in the 
Leaves: 'My friend, once a dear gentle 
Mouse, is now a rat.' But our fall has been 
hectic and we now hope to run over to 
Nassau for a few days after Christmas. My 
daughter Carolyn (Farrington Corson '51) 
writes me all about my precious grandson. 
In July Carolyn and Doug bought a lovely 
house in Connecticut, a Cape Cod split- 
level. Our Bob is a senior at the Univer- 
sity of Miami, and my Dad, at 93, is still 
sharp and alert." 

And now I must relate a great personal 
loss to me and which will also seem tragic 
to all those who recall her. On September 
1st, Lolita del Pino x-'26, my first Lasell 
roommate and most beloved Spanish "tu- 
tor," died in a Havana hospital when her 
heart suddenly failed under an apparently 
routine breast operation. The dramatic 
therapy of heart massage caused her to 
rally, but only for a few hours. She 
died in the prime of life, seemingly healthy, 
certainly happy — for she retained her 
faith in Castro's "Liberacion" — and living 
a scholarly, dedicated life for others. I 
know you all can hear her still — as can I 
— calling down the corridors, "Ma-ri-es- 
ta!" 

My own life continues to be full of 
"treks" — back West Sept. 1st, back East 
(to deliver Maris as a junior at Smith — 
where she revels in Prof. Salvadori!) with 
five heavenly HOT days at the seashore; 
then over to New York for theatres and a 
brief meeting with Nadine Strong James ■ — 
brief because Nadine was about to enplane 
for Europe to visit an aunt in France and 
then to enjoy a Swiss sojourn with her hus- 
band. Incidentally, the Jameses "re-uned" 
with Babs Aspegren Danielson x-'26 in 
Vevey and enjoyed hearing about the new 
villa a-building there. We've made our 
usual Lake Forest trips to see Peb (who 
inherits my passion for linguism and is 
taking Russian!), and in November I 
spent five days in Chicago, partly to attend 
the Illinois School Boards Convention — 
where OUR Board is apparently the first in 
the nation to DEMAND some research into 
Urban Problems! (Imagine the U.S. Office 
of Education "having no data" on such a 
snow-balling situation!) Some time also 
was devoted to the Society of Mayflower 
Descendants in Illinois as I have just been 
named to the Executive Board. And since 
I've picked "tasks that are never done," I 
am still on School Board Committees and 



Symphony Committees in my own city. 

Add to the roll call of grandmothers 
our Madeleine Roth White. A red-haired 
little girl named Laura Elizabeth has been 
born to Rothie's son, Billy, and his young 
wife. 

— M.D.H.B. 

Other News: Emma Ockert has "taken up 
painting as a hobby — concentrating on 
Early American decoration — and love it!" 

Mary Freeman Wisdom proudly an- 
nounces the arrival of a grandson, "our 
first grandchild. Our son, and youngest 
child, is in his first year at Harvard Law 
School." 

From Honolulu, Helen Duncan Devereux 
sends: "Aloha nui to all my '26-ers and 
thereabouts ! We have been up to our ears 
in house renovations for months. The 
worst is over and we hope to be back to 
normal soon." 

Gertrude Moeller Baum writes: "Am 
happy to have a representative at Lasell this 
year. My niece, Joan Moeller, of Orange, 
Connecticut is a member of the Class of 
1961. Walter and I flew to Europe in May 
— spent several weeks in Italy, Switzerland, 
Austria, France and England. Loved every 
minute of it." 

Natalie Albury Boswell x-'26 admits: 
"Life gets lonely here on Paradise Island 
• — would love to hear from my Lasell 
friends." Nat's address: Box 2, Nassau, 
N. P., Bahamas. 

1927 

Mrs. David Rosen 
(Rosalie Brightman), Secretary 
8 Still St., Brookline 46, Mass. 

Dear '27-ers, 

Madeleine Robinhold Leinbach added to 
her greeting: "Have become a member of 
the grandmothers' club — and it doesn't 
make me feel one bit older. Rebecca Faith 
Smith is the name of our darling, and I 
rather hope she will lisp. Had a grand 
New England vacation last August, visit- 
ing Cape Cod, Bar Harbor, Franconia 
Notch and a very short stay in Boston." 

Lucy Field Wildman declares: "The 
Wildmans are all healthy and happy. We 
now have two granddaughters — Judy, 
3V2, and Debbie, ten months. Our young- 
est son, Jerry, was a member of The 
Stephen Foster Story cast at the Bardstown 
(Ky.) summer theatre." 

From Minerva Damon Ludewig comes 
the message that "another Christmas finds 
me in a pretty little San Francisco apart- 
ment. Have been quite busy arranging 
the house and doing volunteer work with 
United Activity. Has been fun getting re- 
acquainted with 'Andy' Anderson Gage '26

and her very nice husband, who live nearby 
in Sacramento." 

Georgia Parrish Campbell says: "Sid and 
I are planning a spring trip to the East 
and hope to say Hello to you. Sid is 
president of the realty board and I am 
president of the Women's Club. We are 
in the process of building a new clubhouse 
so there are many meetings and much to 
do. I'm still going to college one night 
a week and, as the boys say, 'Mum expects 
to graduate in June,' or — 'Grandma 
hopes to.' Our eldest son, Jack, is prac- 
ticing law in La Mesa and we are fortu- 
nate to have the grandchildren near. Dave 
is in San Francisco and will graduate in 
June — if the draft doesn't claim him first. 
Our youngest is a freshman at Arizona 
State University, and we have had some 
wonderful weekends in Phoenix. Life is 
full — in fact, brimming over — and 
not nearly enough hours in the day to 
do all we want to." 

Katherine Tufts Wiese and husband 
"still maintain our northern Wisconsin 
resort and love this outdoor life. Our son, 
David, is in the Navy and Carol is a junior 
at the University of Wisconsin." 

I had a delightful encounter with Min- 
nie Remick Dandison, who was shopping 
in Boston for her daughter's wedding. 
Mrs. Remick was with her — both looked 
just wonderful and were delightfully 
happy over the great occasion. Mardie 
Silliman — looking slim and chic — is 
continuing her wonderful work in dis- 
tributing books for the Merchant Marine 
Library. 

As for me — Life continues to be ex- 
citing and crammed between my career de- 
mands and life at home. Right now we 
are planning a winter vacation in Jamaica. 
I do hope everyone has a wonderful I960 
— and do remember to "put a little fun 
in all your classmates' lives" by sharing 
your activities, and those of your families.

1928 

Lillian G. Bethel, Secretary 
The Waltham Hospital, Waltham 54, Mass. 

Dared to risk the "penalty" of Deadline 
Dates, and waited for word of Bettie 
Smith Scollon. "Holiday Greetings to 
Friends from Sunny California" arrived in 
the nick of time and we are happy to share 
with you: 

"From 62 El Camino Drive, Corte 
Madera: Surprise! Like most people we 
know, we have often talked of moving to 
a warmer clime. In the spring of this year 
we decided to do it — spent several 
months tying up loose ends in Buffalo and 



East Aurora, and on July 25th packed our- 
selves in the red Ford and were on our 
way — directly across country to Chicago. 
Iowa, Nebraska, touched upon the Blade 
Hills, spent a night in Cheyenne with 
friends, Denver, Salt Lake City. Nevada 
■ — and then, California, arriving in the 
Bay Area on August 3d. 

"Like mad we scurried about looking 
for a home while vacationing at the same 
time in a lovely motel with swimming 
pool, and were fortunate enough to find 
just the right- house the day before the 
furniture arrived. Here we are — pretty 
well established in Marin County, about 
eight miles north of the Golden Gate 
Bridge and exciting San Francisco. Corte 
Madera is a small town situated among 
smaller hills of the coastal range, most of 
which is west of us and therefore cuts out 
much of the roughest sea winds, also fog. 
The whole area is very scenic. 

"Tom is gradually becoming used to 
business ways in the Bay Area and hopes 
to find a measure of success in another 
year. In the meantime, I have an interest- 
ing job with a firm of patent attorneys in 
the heart of financial San Francisco. The 
19th-floor window faces the East Bay and 
the Bay Bridge, from which I see ships 
passing to and from the Orient. 

"Do come out to visit ■ — any and all. 
Best wishes for I960." 

Evelyn Douglass Hooper happily "finds 
things going along as usual — summer at 
Bass River on the Cape, golf, and a round 
of work at the church. Our two daughters 
are at Northwestern University — one, a 
senior, and the younger is a freshman. 
Their brother is a high school sophomore. 
My best to all '28-ers." 

Joan Johnson Doriot forwards this new 
address: 3030 North Seventh St. #48, 
Phoenix, Arizona. Her husband is now 
associated with the Valley National Bank, 
and daughter, Dorothy, is a freshman at 
the North Phoenix High School. 

Many thanks to Mariesta Howland 
Bloom '26, who thoughtfully sent word 
of Catherine Worrall Flint. "Kitty re- 
joiced in a perfect Thanksgiving celebra- 
tion for her son, Bill, returned from the 
University of Bologna in Italy where he 
had been working on his Master's in Ad- 
vanced International Studies. Daughter 
Beesie, with husband and baby, journeyed 
from Philadelphia for the family party."

As promised, we list a few additional 
remarks (statiscally, we regret) from the 
questionnaires returned for last year's re- 
union. And we share too the aerogramme 
letter, dated Tokyo, Japan, May 26th, from 
Peggy Contrell White: 

"Colonel and I left New York in Janu- 
ary, crossed the States via bus, visited our 
four grandchildren in Cincinnati and spent 
a week at the Arizona research station of 
the American Museum of Natural History, 
of which Colonel is a field associate. From 
Travis Air Force Base near San Francisco, 
we flew via Military Air Transport Service 
to Hickham Field in Hawaii, where we 
spent twelve perfect days of sightseeing. 
Our next stop in the Philippines included 
a five-day visit at Baguio. From there we 
journeyed on to Taiwan for a month's 
stay and managed five days in Hong Kong 
■ — that fabulous and beautiful city. We 
arrived in Japan on Easter Sunday and 
then the Colonel went to work. The 
Blakemore- White Expedition went to Hok- 
kaido Island for brown bear — but alas, 
no bear showed, so we are returning to 
New York with precious little to show 
for the six months' journey save a detailed 
report on bear for the Museum but no 
skins. The Colonel hunts with camera 
and hopes to get material for articles for 
magazines. His article, 'We Retired to 
The Seven Seas,' published in the August 

1958 issue of Cor&net tells our story with 
pictures. Also Outdoor Life, the January 
'59 copy, carried the story of a successful 
expedition here last year for goat-antelope. 

"Japan is a beautiful country — two 
months spent here in 1958 and two in 

1959 have made us more eager to return. 
The people are so gracious and friendly. 
We leave tomorrow by MATS, flying via 



India and Europe, and are looking for- 
ward to seeing our brand new grandson in 
White Plains. Good luck and much happi- 
ness to all."

Dear Friends, 

This year has gone by like a minute — 
and the minute began with all of us 
thoroughly enjoying life in Newport, 
Rhode Island, where Hank had a very 
interesting job as C. O. at the Underwater 
Ordnance Station. His duties there re- 
quired him to make many trips — but 
none too long and we had many merry 
reunions in our comfortable set of quar- 
ters on his return. 

Karin kept up her most interesting round 
of activities — making new friends as well 
as frequently reunioning with old ac- 
quaintances — one of the many aspects 
of this wonderful Navy life we enjoy more 
with every passing year. You all know 
what an ardent "Ike" fan she has always 
been, and to have some of her socializing 
in the home where he first lived in New- 
port was — at times — more than she 
could stand. 

Ann and Sally found new and lasting 
friends at the excellent Newport school, 
where Ann (15) had been a cheer leader 
in junior high. Sally (13) had her own 
activities but we noticed that many of the 
boys in Ann's crowd found our home more 
appealing with friend Sal in the back- 
ground. Sally, we thought, was unaware 
of this situation for some time — ! But 
you all know how mistaken parents can 
sometimes be ! 

Little Kay — Karin, junior — has 
brought us . all more joy than we could 
possibly express. For some strange rea- 
son she seems to prefer boys — in fact, 
she has been known to say: "Boys are nice! 
I'm a boy!" But we feel she is pulling 
our collective legs. She is an extremely 
happy child, and in many ways, old for 
her four years. 

Now, for the late late news to explain 
the "Naples" dateline. We had had rumor 
as early as August that we might be mov- 
ing to new lands "about Christmas time." 
For reasons beyond our control we had 
word in late September that Hank was to 
go to a fine sea command in the Mediter- 
ranean and he must be there on the 24th 
of October. With less than three weeks' 
notice we sailed together from New York 
on October 14 via American Export Line. 
Hank had to leave us in Spain, fly to 
Napoli and go to sea immediately. He re- 
turned to Naples in his flagship the day we 
girls arrived on the SS Exeter — and to- 
gether the two ships steamed in formation 
off Naples for several hours because a 
terrific storm prevented their entering 
port. The girls had the roughest possible 
Mediterranean voyage yet stopped in Cadiz 
and Barcelona and Marseilles for sight- 
seeing.

THE APPOINTMENT OF LASELL'S 



THIRD PRESIDENT .... 



The Board of Trustees announce the 
appointment of Dr. Blake Tewksbury 
as third president and eighth head of 
Lasell Junior College. Dr. Tewksbury 
will succeed Dr. Richard M. Packard, 
chairman of the Social Studies Depart- 
ment, who has occupied the post on an 
acting basis during the current year. 

Dr. Tewksbury was graduated from 
Bowdoin College in 1934 with the de- 
gree of Bachelor, of Arts, receiving 
honors in Latin. He held teaching posts 
at Milo, Maine, at Thornton Academy 
in Saco, Maine, and at the Rye Country 
Day School, Rye, N. Y., from 1934-40. 

After completing some graduate work 
at Harvard University, he received his 
master of arts degree from New York 
University in 1940, majoring in educa- 
tional administration. He joined the 
faculty of Keystone Junior College, La 
Plume, Pa. in 1940 as registrar. In 1943 
Dr. Tewksbury was advanced to the 
position of vice-president and two years 
later became president of one of the 
leading private junior colleges in Penn- 
sylvania. 

In 1954 President Tewksbury re- 
ceived an honorary Doctor of Laws de- 
gree from Bucknell University in Lewis- 
bury, Pa. In presenting the degree, 
Dean William H. Coleman cited Dr. 
Tewksbury's "constructive services" as 
a teacher and administrator in the grow- 
ing junior college field. 

During Dr. Tewksbury's administra- 
tion, Keystone Junior College enlarged 
its educational facilities and added sev- 



eral new buildings including a library, 
gymnasium, faculty residences, a wom- 
en's dormitory and a dining hall now 
under construction. During the same 
period the endowment of the institution 
grew from nothing to over $500,000. 

Born in Auburn, Maine, Dr. Tewks- 
bury is the son of the late H. J. R. 
Tewksbury, for many years editor of the 
"Portland (Maine) Sunday Telegram." 
The family is descended from the found- 
ers of Tewksbury, Mass. 

Mrs. Tewksbury, the former Margaret 
H. Ricker of Buckfield, Maine, is a 
graduate of Boston University and 
taught several years prior to her mar- 
riage. The couple have two sons, Blake 
Grayson and Mark, 16 and 14. 

Dr. Tewksbury has served as presi- 
dent of both the junior College Council 
of the Middle Atlantic States and the 
Pennsylvania Association of Junior Col- 
leges. He has recently completed two 
three-year terms as a member of the 
national board of directors of the Amer- 
ican Association of Junior Colleges and 
has served as a member of the executive 
committee of the Middle States Asso- 
ication, the area accredited agency. He 
is a member of the Lackawanna Trail 
Joint School Board and the Scranton 
Kiwanis Club. In recent years he has 
served on Gov. Leader's committee on 
educational problems in Pennsylvania 
and the regional White House Confer- 
ence group. Dr. Tewksbury has trav- 
elled extensively in this country and in 
Europe.

ON THE CAMPUS 



The college is happy to welcome to 
its faculty a charming new recruit to 
the English Department, Dr. Chun-Jo 
Liu, who replaced Mrs. Helen Peirce 
(Fac. '53-'59). 

A native of Peking, Miss Liu at- 
tended the National South West Asso- 
ciated University, from which she re- 
ceived her Bachelor of Arts degree. 
She received the Master of Arts degree 
from Occidental College in Los 
Angeles, and then attended the Uni- 
versity of Wisconsin Graduate School, 
from which she received her doctorate 
in 1952. By coincidence, while study- 
ing at Wisconsin, she attended lectures 
by Professor Wylie Sypher, chairman 
of the Department of Language, Liter- 
ature and Arts at Simmons College 
and husband of our own Mrs. Lucy 
Sypher (Fac. '29- ). 

Currently Dr. Liu lives in Cam- 
bridge, where she shares an apartment 
with a music major from Vassar, and 
follows her many enthusiasms in an at- 
mosphere which she finds both stim- 
ulating and satisfying. The proximity 
of the great Harvard Center for Orien- 
tal Studies has tempted her to under- 
take the study of Japanese, and is fol- 
lowing a course in calculus in the Har- 
vard Extension series. 

Dr. Liu has already established a 
considerable reputation in scholarly 
circles in this country and is the author 
of at least two monographs in the field 
of her special interest: "Heroes and 
Heroines in Modern Chinese Fiction" 
which was published by the Far East- 
em Journal, and_ "People, Places and 
Times in Five Modern Chinese 
Novels". At the same time she has 
been busy as a teacher as well, with 
faculty appointments at the University 
of Wisconsin, Brooklyn College, Vas- 
sar College, and most recently, the 
University of Florida. 



"Books of All Time" was the theme 
of Lasell's seventh annual Book Fair 
was held on Tuesday and Wednesday, 
February 23 and 24, I960. Distin- 
guished visitors to the campus for the 
occasion were Miss May Sarton, poet 
and novelist, and Professor Robert 
W. Rogers, chairman of the English 
Department of the University of Illi- 
nois. 



Miss Muriel McClelland, assistant 
dean and director of physical educa- 
tion, and Miss Tilia Fantasia, of the 
physical education department, chap- 
eroned the sixty-first annual White 
Mountain trip on February 4-7, I960. 

On March 25 sixty-six students and 
four chaperones flew to Bermuda for 
the spring vacation. Dean June Bab- 
cock, Miss Harriet Atwood, Miss 
Frances Atwood and Miss Fantasia ac- 
companied the girls. 



The Seventh Father-Daughter Week- 
end was held at the college on March 
11-13, I960. The festivities began on 
Friday evening with a performance of 
"Elizabeth, the Queen" at Winslow 
Hall. Highlights of the Saturday pro- 
gram were a Talent Show — "Life 
with Father" — presented in the after- 
noon at Winslow Hall, and a "Wild. 
West" Costume Dance in the evening. 



The faculty of the Art Department 
opened its initial exhibition of work 
in Carter Hall on Wednesday after- 
noon, March 16. The showing contin- 
ued through Friday. Miss Jacquelin 
Saunders exhibited water and oil 
colors; Mr. Donald Warren ■ — ■ archi- 
tectural plans, sculpture and paintings; 
Miss Amelia Terrazano — fashion il- 
lustrations and clothing designs; Mrs. 
Ann Cuneo — sculpture, painting and 
weaving; and Miss Marguerite Barrett 
— crafts and drawings.

In Memoriam: Mercedes Rendell Freeman 
on January 30, I960, after a short illness. 
Born in New York City, September 18, 
1901, she had lived in Yonkers for fifty 
years. Mercedes was graduated from Yonkers 
High School in 1921 and from Lasell 
Seminary in 1923. Secretary of her class at 
Lasell, she later served as secretary of the 
New York Lasell Club and she was a Life 
Member of Lasell Alumnae, Inc. 

Mrs. Freeman was graduated from Teachers 
College, Columbia University in 1926 and 
taught home economics in the Yonkers 
Public Schools for thirty years. This year 
she was teaching at Walt Whitman Junior 
High School, and was the delegate from that 
school to the Yonkers Teachers Association. 

Mrs. Freeman was a member of the 
Morsemere Methodist Church. For many 
years she had been chairman of the Cheer 
Committee of the Yonkers Sunshine Society. 
During World War II she was a Staff As- 
sistant of the Yonkers Chapter, American 
Red Cross and also a member of the Ration 
Board of the U.S. Citizens Service Corps. 




Mercedes Rendell Freeman '23 

Surviving is her husband, John P. Free-

35th REUNION: June 11, I960. Please 
note the change of date. When our com- 
mittee of four met last fall, we mailed 
questionnaires and letters announcing June 
4th as Alumnae Day. Shortly thereafter at 
the opening of the college year, Lasell 
designated Commencement exercises would 
be held on June 11 and 12, I960. 

Martha Wilcox Hills has kindly consented 
to serve as Reunion Chairman. The response 
to our "early" questionnaire has been ex- 
cellent and as of March 1st, the following 
girls promised to join us on campus in June:

A pleasant surprise was a long letter from 
Glenna Bullis, 2914 Darby Lane, Lafayette, 
Indiana. Glenna is co-ordinator of the 
Achievement Center for Children, a service 
for non-achieving children. 

Catherine Beecher Wood is active in 
Methuen (Mass.) community activities — 
church, hospital and local clubs. Much tra- 
veling is involved in visiting her three 
children — widely scattered — Potsdam, 
N. Y., Columbia, Miss., and Washington, 
D. C. 

Florence Harding Hallett x-'25 (grand- 
mother of seven) has conducted a successful 
real estate business in Mansfield (Mass.) for 
over twenty years. When Mr. Hallett retires 
from his Boston brokerage business, they 
plan extensive travelling. 

Ruth Mayes Longmire is "re-orienting" 
herself to life in Charlotte, N. C. Her son 
attends Southwestern at Memphis, Tenn. 

Like so many of our group, Peg Gordon 
Ferguson leads a busy and useful life — 
active in hospital and Junior League work, is 
a member of the Board of Directors of 
Family and Children's Service. Daughter 
Nancy, graduated from Lasell in 1959, is 
now married, and Peg's second daughter is 
a secretary and lives at home. 

Our special thoughts and sincere sympathy 
go to Dorothy Cook Reynal, Ruby Hola- 
bird Keeler and Ruth Martin Lansing. Mr. 
Reynal, Mr. Keeler and Mr. Lansing died 
during the past year. 

Lois Bryant Warner writes that she has 
given up her banking position to become 
secretary to the Headmaster of the Morris- 
town School for Boys in New Jersey. Lois 
loves the education field and finds it more 
rewarding than any work she has ever done. 
Her son, Ray, is a student at Manlius. 

Dorothy Hagadorn Taylor writes: "Com- 
pleting my 18th year with the Red Cross 
Blood Bank in Fairfield, Conn. Am now 
taking up tennis again — which I gave up 
twenty-five years ago because of AGE!" 

Jo Miller Berry sent Christmas greetings 
from Redding Road, Georgetown, Conn. The 
Berrys have three children — two boys and 
a girl — and a new grandson. 

Louise Hegeman Whitman's outside in- 
terest is with The Newington (Conn.) Home 
for Crippled Children, where for seven 
years she has done volunteer work with the 
nursery and kindergarten-age children. Louise 
and Johnny also have an "escape" home on 
Cape Cod. 

Emma Smith Quereau x-'25 is active in 
church work and does relief nursing. Her 
husband is with the National Bureau of 
Standards in Denver, Colorado. Their two 
daughters are now high school and college 
age.

We are hoping Edna Hart Hoyt will come 
from California to join us for Reunion. Her 
daughter was married on Thanksgiving Eve. 

Ruth Burlington writes from Carmel, 
California: "I am doing quite a bit of 
painting — mostly water colors, but some 
oils too. Am a member of the Carmel Art 
Association and was very excited when the 
curator of the gallery recently phoned me 
to say that three of my paintings had been 
sold. Enjoy craft work also — making 
mobiles, driftwood sculptures and garden 
pieces. A few years ago I exhibited thirty 
pieces of driftwood at the Desert Art Gallery 
in Palm Desert. 

"Estelle Jenney visited me while on her 
California vacation in the fall of '59 — we 
had lots to talk about. Wish I might join 
the '25-ers in June, but know it is im- 
possible. However, if any of you come to the 
West Coast and are in the vicinity of Carmel, 
be sure to look me up." 

.... And this, "Dear Doves," ends my 
five years of service — with Barbara — as 
class secretary. There have been times when 
news was non-existent and deadline was upon 
us. But it has been a pleasant task and we 
have enjoyed it. I have loved reading each 
and every questionnaire that has come in 
recent months and sincere thanks to all who 
responded. 

My personal news is that we — the 
Spragues — are returning to Connecticut 
this summer. My husband has been trans- 
ferred to the New York office of Kendall 
Mills and while — in a sense — I "shall 
be going home," we dread leaving the Bos- 
ton area — especially Dedham, where we 
have been for twenty years. We have made 
many fine friends. 

Our "new" home — a big white house — 
in Old Lyme (two miles from the Connecti- 
cut Turnpike) is but five miles from my 
mother. Our son graduates from Harvard in 
June, and our daughter, now the mother 
of two little boys, will be nearby in Con- 
necticut too. If you are traveling, do look 
us up. 

In the meantime, I shall hope to see 
many of you at Reunion.

The Christmas issue of the Mariemont 
School Bulletin (Sacramento, Calif.) was 
this delightful story, "Around the World 
with Santa Claus," written by Margaret 
(Andy) Anderson Gage: 

"Most of us associate Christmas with sym- 



bols of Santa Claus, decorated pine or fir 
trees, holly and mistletoe, candy, nuts, toys, 
and presents. To the Germans must go the 
credit for the origin of 'our' kind of Christ- 
mas. They are the ones who used the 'Tan- 
nenbaum', hand carved wooden toys, carols 
and the jolly old chap named Kris Kringle, 
or Santa Claus to brighten up the Yuletide, 
or as they called it, 'Weinhacten'. 

"Christmas has similar terms in other 
countries. In France it's Noel; Spain, Navi- 
dad; and Italy, Natale. 

"As we go south in Europe, the pine trees 
disappear, and a Christmas tree is hardly 
known in this area. But in Yugoslavia the 
oak is burned the night before Christmas, 
and must still show sparks during the next 
day. 

"Santa Claus or his counterpart is largely 
a custom of the north countries. In Eng- 
land and Holland he is St. Nick or St. 
Nicholas, in Denmark he is known as the 
benevolent little old man of the attic, 'Jul- 
Nisse'. The country children of France are 
delighted with 'Melchior', who is a sort of 
Santa Claus in reverse. He is a ludicrous 
wicker straw man led through the streets on 
a donkey. The children give him, through 
his attendants, food and gifts which are 
taken to the parish church and presented to 
the poor. 

"In Italy there is a beneficent old witch, 
'Befana', who, dressed in rags, supposedly 
goes from house to house on a broomstick, 
leaving presents on the hearth for the chil- 
dren. The Precipio, a collection of statuettes 
of the Holy Family, shepherds and Wise 
Men gathered around a miniature manger, 
replaces the Christmas tree of the northern 
countries. 

"Samischlaus, usually a young Bishop 
dressed with a white beard and red robe 
walks in the villages of Switzerland, delight- 
ing the children who offer him food and 
presents. 

"Spain is a good deal like Italy with per- 
haps more emphasis on the Three Wise Men 
or Tres Reyes who substitute for Santa 
Claus. 

"Our neighbor to the south adds an in- 
teresting game for the children. In Mexico 
a grotesque but merry face is painted on an 
earthen bowl. It is filled with fruit, candy, 
nuts and good-luck charms, and suspended 
from the ceiling. When all is ready, it is 
started swaying and each child is successively 
blindfolded. He then tries to crash the 
Pinata with a stick. When one finally suc- 
ceeds, all the others rush to grab what falls 
from the broken Pinata. 

"Yes, they are all a little bit different, but 
all have the theme of happy children and 
peace on earth and good will towards men."

The Bulletin also printed the biography, 
"Meet the Author": 

Margaret Gage was born in Illinois, spent 
summers in the north woods of Wisconsin 
or with grandparents in Portland, Oregon. 
At sixteen she travelled and studied piano 
abroad, followed by two years of college at 
Lasell Junior College, and taking piano and 
musicology at the New England Conserv- 
atory. 

From there to University of Wisconsin, 
but before finishing her senior year she mar- 
ried Daniel Gage, a native Californian — 
Stanford graduate whom she met in Boston 
when he was attending Harvard Business 
School. Her husband was a professor at the 
University of Oregon and so she finished 
her A.B. degree, (majoring in public school 
music and piano), at that college. 

Shortly after that her husband took a 
leave of absence to study for his Ph.D. and 
they went abroad for him to attend the 
University of Munich in Germany, and then 
back to complete it at the University of 
Michigan. Dr. Gage is presently on the 
faculty of Sacramento State College. 

In 1937 Dr. and Mrs. Gage travelled to 
the Orient — the Islands, Japan, China, 
Hong-Kong and the Philippines. In the 
past ten years the Gages have toured South 
America, six months in Europe and this 
past summer to Central America. 

In between trips Mrs. Gage accompanied 
for the Tuesday Club Choral of Sacramento 
and for soloists, and continued taking col- 
lege courses toward a California Teachers 
Credential. Four years ago she substituted 
in the City Schools of Sacramento, followed 
by a year in the Arden-Carmichael district. 
She was pleased to be selected as a per- 
manent kindergarten teacher at Mariemont, 
where to her delight she can give her classes 
MUSIC, MUSIC, and more music.

Angie, who was chairman of the Women's 
Division of the building fund for Morton 
Hospital in Taunton, and is a director and 
chairman of the ways and means committee 
of the hospital's Women's Auxiliary is a 
valuable asset in directing the first steps 
of an organization now being established to 
serve a hospital that is destined to be the 
center for chronic diseases of adults and 
children of the whole Cape area. 

With working plans and drawings for a 
new $5,000,000 hospital to replace the old 
buildings at the State sanatorium, and the 
future looking bright for the realization of 
this long standing dream, a Lakeville Hos- 
pital Women's Auxiliary is an important 
part of the over-all picture. 

In 1939 Angelita served as chairman of 
the Massachusetts Society of Prevention of 
Cruelty to Children drive in Taunton, is a 
past secretary of the board of directors of 
the Taunton Red Cross Chapter and is 
presently a board member. She is past di- 
rector of the Brick House School, of the 
Girls' Club and the Female Charitable Or- 
ganization. Her other activities in Taunton 
include that of being a director of the Boys' 
Club Women's Auxiliary and membership in 
the Historical Society. 

Helen Burwell kindly shares a recent 
note from Alice Fernandez Harkins, who 
writes: "I am a part-time housemother at 
the University of Maine. Daughter Gracia, 
R.N., is now affiliated with the Eastern 
Maine Hospital in Bangor, and Margaret 
was married in November. Son Mike is 
with the Army security in California, 
Bernard, a college senior, and the four 
younger ones are very active."

Catherine English Poehler is employed at 
Radio Free Europe in Munich, Germany as 
executive secretary to the Director of News 
and Information. We are pleased to share 
this first-hand news of Cathy from Gudrun 
Strasse 3/1, Munich 19, Germany: 

"In April we shall celebrate our fifth wed- 
ding anniversary — have two beautiful, 
impish daughters — and have been living 
here in Europe for the past three years and 
enjoying it very much. It all started shortly 
after our wedding in April 1955 when Herm 
developed a yen to return to his native Ger- 
many to complete work on his doctorate de- 
gree in physics. We religiously saved our 
pennies for a year and a half and in October 
1956, when Ann was just three months old, 
we set sail. Shortly after arriving in Munich 
I found a job with Radio Free Europe, first 
as a copy editor, later as secretary and more 
recently as executive secretary. I enjoy the 
work very much but must admit at first 
I was a bit awed by its international scope. 
Most interesting of all is the opportunity of 
working with people of so many nationalities. 

"Do miss everyday life with the children 
— we do have a full-time nursemaid for 
them and I must admit she disciplines them 
much better than I. The children both speak 
German and my present project is teaching 
them English. Ann has advanced to the stage 
where she can say, 'That is a table,' and 'My 
name is Anne Poehler' — with a delightful 
accent, of course. They both sing 'God 
Bless America' with great gusto. 

"Do hope Martha Norlin Swanson reads 
this and writes me soon so we can pick up 
where we left off several years ago. I've 
been out of touch for so long that I know 
I shall find it strange when we do return to 
the States — by the end of I960. But I 
know too we shall all be more than a little 
homesick when we finally leave this lovely 
country." — C.E.P.

marvelous days — and then began via rented 
car. First to Switzerland and then up and 
down through the French Alps to the Riviera

we found completely different from the 
French Coast. On to Genoa, Pisa and then 
wonderful Rome, Florence and Venice. Our

1960 PRIZE WINNERS

Linda Telfer, Marilyn Senior, Lynn Flusser, Dr. Richard Packard. Rear, 
Marion Hockridge, Janet Sawyer, Martha Yerkes, Ruth Work, Diane DeCicco, 

and Emily Ruane. 



The Class Nite Exercises which preceded Lasell's one hundred fifth Annual 
Commencement were held on the Recreation Field on Saturday, June 11, I960. 
Dr. Richard M. Packard welcomed the parents and guests of the 260 graduates: 
"We are very glad that so many parents are here to see the presentation of awards 
which have been earned this year by the Senior Class. You fathers and mothers have 
made a great investment of love and money in your daughters and we like to have 
you join with us in pride and appreciation for what they have accomplished. The 
awards we will give tonight are traditional — some based on very old traditions, 
some on newer ones. The nice feature of traditions is that they connect the 
present with the past and the future, and make each class a part of that continuous 
stream of college life which is the institution." 

First presented were the Athletic Awards. Ellen Smith, Claire Sullivan and 
Joan White were each given a Lasell pin for their participation in three or more 
sports during their two years at the college. The Tennis Singles Tournament was 
won by Jeanne Wickenden, whose name will be engraved on the tennis trophy, and 
she was awarded a souvenir pin. The Blue Team, under the leadership of Janet 



LASELL LEAVES 



Olsen, scored the highest number of points in intramural competition this year 
and Janet was awarded the Blue and White Shield. The college teams have now 
evened the score, each winning the Shield sixteen times. 

Linda Telfer, chairman of the Building Fund, presented Dr. Packard with a 
check in the amount of $1,611.78, which will be used for the future development 
of the campus. 

Mrs. Mary Blatchford VanEtten recognized the members of the Class of 
I960 who had been named to the Dean's List for four semesters: Judith Blake, 
Carol Cookson, Barbara Davies, Dianne DeCicco, Judith Edmonson, Sallie Flowers, 
Leslie Ghilani, Marion Hockridge, Marily MacKinnon, Anne Sutherland Rollins, 
Emily Ruane, Phyllis Stone, Claire Sullivan, Joan White and Ruth Work. 

The Foods Awards, miniature loaves, were first given in 1882 and are one of 
the oldest of traditional awards. A gold loaf, first prize, was won by Mary Jane 
Hazrick, and a silver loaf was presented to Nancy Marie Mullin. A gold thimble, 
first award for highest average for four semesters in the Clothing Course, was given 
to Audrey Bergesen, and a silver thimble to Carol Vincent. 

Gold and silver medals were awarded to girls graduating with Honors and

any deficiencies and whose total average for four semesters has been 3.5 out of 4.

Silver medals were won by Dianne DeCicco, Emily Ruane and Janet Sawyer. To 
graduate with Highest Honors a student maintains a four-semester average of 3.7 
out of 4. Gold medal winners were Marion Hockridge and Ruth Work. 

For the first time five members of the graduating class were chosen "repre- 
sentative Lasell girls" and were awarded the coveted Jackets. The highest college 
award recipients were Linda Cbiaramonte, Lynn Flusser, Marilyn Senior, Linda 
Telfer and Martha Yerkes. 

The traditional torchlight parade marked the close of the evening's program. 
Martha Yerkes, president of the senior class, delivered the farewell speech at The 
Crow's Nest, the I960 banner was replaced by that of the Class of 1961, the 
torches were extinguished and seniors and freshmen sang the Alma Mater. 

COMMENCEMENT ADDRESS ....

THERE ARE LEFT THE MOUNTAINS 

If I were being graduated from college today and if I had some knowledge 
of the generations immediately preceding my own, I suspect that I should think 
of myself as having been robbed. I should know, of course, that I had many 
things which my father and my grandfather did not have, but that would be part 
of my problem; my better fortune would lie in many things, and there would be 
so many other areas in which I think that I could only envy those who went before 
me. 

I should have power steering on my automobile, and my father and my 
grandfather would not have had that when they were graduated from college. I 
should have air-conditioning and ball-point pens, wonder drugs and television, jet 
airplanes and nylon stockings and electric shavers; and when my father and grand- 
father were graduated from college, not only would they not have had these things, 
they would not even have known about them. 

But if my own commencement were occurring today, how could I avoid the 
awareness that my father and my grandfather had something else which I did not 
have? They had an earth whose resources were apparently inexhaustible, whose 
indestructibility was unchallenged, and whose resilience under man's mistreatment 
was one of the facts of life too obvious even to be mentioned. They had a native 
land whose two mighty oceans and two contiguous neighbors provided impregnable 
barriers against invasion or other attack by an enemy. They had a nation still young 
enough to be naive, still naive enough to believe its professions, and still believing 
enough of what it professed to find expedience a less persuasive argument than 
fact. If I were leaving college today, I should know that when my father and my 
grandfather left their colleges, they had certainties which I found less than certain. 
That the past deserved their respect and the present their devotion and the future 
their hope, that life was really worth living and work really worth doing and the 
world really worth saving, that honesty deeply mattered and faithfulness truly 
counted and righteousness actually prevailed — these unquestionable assumptions 
of my father and my grandfather are daily questioned all around us, and were I 
being graduated from college today, I do not think that I could avoid the feeling 
that I had been robbed of my birthright. 



LASELL LEAVES 



It was in such a mood that I stumbled on that poem by Robinson Jeffers and 
then on those words that I have stolen for my title. While this America settles 
in the mould of its vulgarity, Jeffers sadly smiles and remembers that "the flower 
fades to make fruit, the fruit rots to make earth." "Life is good," he says, "be 
it stubbornly long or suddenly a mortal splendor : meteors are not needed less than 
mountains." 

But for my children, I would have them keep their 
distance from the thickening center; corruption 

Never has been compulsory, when the cities lie at the 
monster's feet there are left the mountains. 1 

I do not suppose that anyone but the poet himself ever fully understands what 
the poet means by his poem, and sometimes I even wonder about the poet himself! 
As I first read Jeffers' lines, I assumed that the words "there are left the mountains" 
probably referred to a situation like that of guerrillas engaged in revolution. When 
the party in power makes it dangerous for them to follow their accustomed ways, 
they leave the cities and towns, they avoid the open fields and well-travelled roads. 
They take to the hills. They hide in the mountains. 

But with the passing of the days and the refusal of the poem wholly to leave 
my mind, another meaning thrust itself upon me. Modern astronomy has taken 
away some of the confidence we used to have when we spoke about the unshakability 
of the eternal hills, but as far as earth itself is concerned, mountains are still about 
as permanent as any aspect of the landscape, about as immovable, about as enduring. 
And if there be any verities that transcend earth's limitations, if there be any realities 
that remain impervious to earth's corrosions, if there be any attributes of man's 
nature that persist in spite of his own perverse attempts to destroy them, what better 
symbols could you find for them than the mountains ? 

"When the cities lie at the monster's feet, there are left the mountains." What 
mountains? Let me suggest four of them. 



First of all, righteousness. That word is harder to define than you may think. 
Look it up in the dictionary, and you find the usual, exasperating information 
that righteousness is "the quality or state of being righteous." And that does not 
help very much. Turn to a thesaurus, and you discover words like integrity, honesty, 
virtue, godliness, purity and nobility. That is a little better, but still it leaves me 
unsatisfied. 

Righteousness is certainly related to truth. This is the vertical dimension in 
which the quality of a human life is brought into conformity with fact, with reality, 
with the physical, moral, and spiritual laws of the universe. Some people will de- 
scribe these circumstances as the will and acts of God. Some will not. At the 
moment, I do not care what you call them as long as you recognize that righteousness 
is not possible apart from truth. 

Righteousness is also certainly related to justice. This is the horizontal dimen- 
sion in which, at the deepest levels of human existence, no individual is made to 
count for more than one. In one sense, this means that every person receives the 
same benefits from life, in another that he is given the same opportunities, and in 
still another that both his benefits and his opportunities are matched with his needs 
and his capacities. Justice is not a simple concept, but what matters here is the 
recognition that injustice and righteousness do not make good companions. 



LASELL LEAVES 



At the risk of gross oversimplification, I should like to assume that righteous- 
ness is the constancy with which a person adapts himself to truth and justice, and 
the point I make is that in the midst of all that changes and decays this mountain 
still endures. By way of illustration, consider a few facts about the world around 
us. The living standards of the American people are approximately three times 
as high as those of European peoples and between five and ten times higher than 
those of our fellow men in Asia. As recently as two or three years ago, there were 
two abortions to every three births in Japan. During the past forty-five years some 
sixty-three million human beings have been killed in war. In the United States of 
America hundreds of thousands of men and women are denied education, homes, 
and employment for no other reason than the color of their skin. A boy whose 
license has been suspended borrows an automobile from a girl's parents, drives 
it at high speed into a utility pole, kills the girl herself, another girl and boy, 
and injures two others. The boy himself is released from the hospital after treat- 
ment for minor cuts and bruises. 

What is your first reaction to this recital of facts? What are the words that 
first enter your mind? Perhaps: "How unfortunate!" Perhaps: "How horrible!" 
But far more likely: "How unfair! How unjust! How wrong!" What part of our 
conscience comes to us at birth, what part is born only of maturity, and what part 
would never come at all without the indoctrination of our elders — these are 
fascinating questions; but whatever the answers may be, we can scarcely escape 
the fact that there is something in the heart of man which makes moral distinc- 
tions and which regards those distinctions as dependent on objective reality, 
wholly unconnected with man's own desire or preference. 

You remember, don't you, the incident of the wringing lamp in Moby Dick? 
Screwed at its axis against the side, the lamp slightly oscillates in Jonah's room, 
and as the ship keels over toward the wharf with the weight of the last bales re- 
ceived, 

the lamp, flame and all, though in slight motion, still 
maintains a permanent obliquity with reference to the room; 
though, in truth, infallibly straight itself, it but made 
obvious the false, lying levels among which it hung. The 
lamp alarms and frightens Jonah; as lying in his berth his 
tormented eyes roll around the place. . . . The floor, the ceiling 
and the side, are all awry. "Oh! so my conscience hangs in 
me!" he groans, "straight upward, so it burns; but the 
chambers of my soul are all in crookedness." 2 

There is something like that in the heart of each of us — a discomfort in the 
presence of crookedness. Some things are right and some things wrong, some 
things good and some things bad, some things just and some things unjust. Our 
own understanding of them may be imperfect, and the changing years may alter 
the prevailing consensus; but still the distinction remains. "When the cities lie 
at the monster's feet, there are left the mountains." What mountains? First of all, 
the mountain of righteousness, whose peak is usually shrouded in mist, whose 
slopes man seldom climbs without hardship and danger, and yet to whose enduring 
existence we steadily bear witness in the guilt that tortures our consciences and the 
wretchedness that stalks the world. 

II 

Second, beauty. It is not hard to forget that mountain today. In fact, it is 



LASELL LEAVES 



much harder to remember it. Of course, some of our neglect is not deliberate. 
We simply become so involved in other things that seeing, we do not perceive 
and hearing, we do not understand. Moreover, there is a great deal in the en- 
vironment of most of us that can only be described as ugly. The uncontrolled in- 
dustrialization of our cities, the mass production of our homes, the ravaging of 
our countrysides, the awkward adolescence of our experiments with new forms of 
art, the absorption in the profitable and the preoccupation with the practical — 
from such a culture beauty has often been largely excluded, and where beauty does 
not exist, it can hardly be found. 

But some of the neglect is more reflective. "I wanted to do a show with real 
realism," a television producer once said. And where did he find his "real realism"? 
Among the petty hoodlums, prostitutes, homosexuals, unwed mothers, shoplifters, 
and pyromaniacs. Yet one need not deny the fact that what he found was real 
to make the counterclaim that reality has other dimensions, too. Is dishonesty 
more real than honesty, impurity more real than purity, perversion more real than 
wholesomeness ? Is not one of the reasons why beauty is so often suspect among 
us the fear we have of being found gullible ? Beauty, we think, is too good to be 
true. Taking delight in it is an evidence of immaturity, a token of philosophical 
shallowness, the proof that we do not know what life is all about. 

Let me, then, reveal my immaturity, my shallowness, and my ignorance by 
confessing that I often emerge from my house on an early spring morning — 
or an afternoon in autumn, or an evening in summer, or a cold winter night — and 
find myself breathing a "Thank you, God!" which has only the most involuntary 
connection with any theological beliefs that I happen to hold. "Thank you, God, 
for the bright blue sky with never a cloud as far as the eye can see. Thank you, God, 
for the clean yellow tulips against the rich brown earth of my garden. Thank you, 
God, for the untrammeled white snow on the hillside above me. Thank you for 
the poetry of Browning and the novels of Hardy, for the plays of Shakespeare 
and the music of Bach, for the sculpture of Michelangelo and the painting of 
Raphael. Thank you for the unrewarded goodness of my parents, the loyal 
patience of my wife, the exuberant joy of my children. Thank you for work and 
play, for love and worship, for ideas and ideals, for hopes and dreams, for honor 
and faith and sacrifice." 

The healing loveliness of unspoiled reaches of sky and sea and land; the 
exquisite charm of man's own noblest adventures with shape and with color, 
with sound and with story; the incredible radiance of a human spirit that asks 
no privilege save that of serving its fellows and seeks no reward except the 
welfare of man — they have not departed from the earth, these flashes of glory 
and grandeur, these glimpses of harmony and light. "When the cities lie at 
the monster's feet, there are left the mountains." What mountains? Second, 
the mountain of beauty, whose very nearness sometimes breeds contempt and 
whose wonders are often hidden by the jungle growth around it, but whose 
tender majesty is born anew with every morning and whose quiet splendor 
daily offers faith and hope and peace. 

Ill 

And then, third: love. I hesitate even to mention that word in this con- 
text. Words are useless if they do not mean for the hearers what they mean for 
the speaker, and the meanings of "love" are so diverse that "love" has lost 
most of its meaning. 

"I love," we say. The words are simple enough in themselves, but so 



LASELL LEAVES 



much depends upon what follows: so much depends upon the object of the 
verb. Time was when the object would always be a person: I love my father, or 
I love my mother; I love Tom, or I love Mary. But not today. "I love," we 
say, and what is the object most likely to be? Orchids or roses, fried lobsters or 
charcoal steaks, sport cars or mink coats or Chanel No. 5. 

"I love," we say. The words are simple enough in themselves, but even 
when the object of the verb is a person, so much depends upon the interpreta- 
tion of the verb itself. Do we mean, "I love you because you are the means to 
some of my ends, because you are an instrument that increases my happiness, 
because you give pleasure to my body or support to my pride or security to my 
future?" Or, on a somewhat higher level, do we mean, "I love you because 
we need each other's assets, because we can exploit each other's talents with 
damage to neither and with profit to both, because we like the same things and 
enjoy the same experiences and share the same goals"? Or, on the highest level 
of all, do we mean, "I love you because I see in you the very handiwork of God 
himself; because I find in you a person, someone who can never be regarded 
as the means to an end but must always be counted an end in his own right; because 
in you I have encountered a part of God's creation that deserves my sympathy, my 
helpfulness, my devotion, and perhaps even my life" ? 

It is with this last kind of love that I am presently concerned, and upon such 
love the conventional limits cannot be imposed. "You shall love your neighbor 
as yourself," the ancient commandment goes. And who is my neighbor? "He is 
the near one and the far one," H. Reinhold Niebuhr has said; "the one beside the 
road I travel here and now; the one removed from me by distances in time and space, 
in convictions and loyalties. He is my friend, the one who has shown compas- 
sion toward me; and my enemy, who fights against me. He is the one in need, 
in whose hunger, nakedness, imprisonment and illness I see or ought to see the 
universal suffering servant. He is the oppressed one who has not risen in rebellion 
against my oppression nor rewarded me according to my deserts as individual or 
member of a heedlessly exploiting group. He is the compassionate one who 
ministers to my needs: the stranger who takes me in; the father and mother, sister 
and brother." 

Love of that kind has little to do with liking and nothing to do with self- 
seeking. In the eyes of the world it is usually foolishness, and in the heart of 
its possessor it is frequently hardship and sorrow. But in the deep darkness of man's 
enduring hatred it is the flame that lights the way homeward, and before the 
threat of nuclear catastrophe it holds the only hope that man can yet be saved. 
"When the cities lie at the monster's feet, there are left the mountains." What 
mountains? Third, the mountain of love, whose simplicity is the deepest wisdom, 
whose mercy the surest justice, and whose gentleness the most incontrovertible 
strength. 

IV 

Fourth and finally, time. This is not precisely the word that I want, but I 
have not been able to find a better one. In part, what I have in mind is immortality, 
but I mean something vastly more inclusive than the mere persistence of an in- 
dividual personality beyond its body's death. In part, what I mean is eternity, but I 
have in mind something far more personal than a cold infinity of days. Actually 
timelessness probably comes closest to my meaning — timelessness in the individual 
himself and timelessness in the universe around him. 

Begin with the individual. I happen to believe in immortality. To be sure, 
I cannot prove it, but neither do I know anyone who can disprove it. I cannot tell 



LASELL LEAVES 



you what life after death is like, but neither do I know anyone who can tell you 
what it is not like. And for reasons that have their roots in the sensible goodness 
of God I believe that in the soul of man there is an eternal dimension which, be- 
ginning on the earth, extends to realms unearthly. 

A couple of generations ago, there was a great preacher in England whose 
name was F. B. Meyer. He had a fatal disease, and one day he wrote to a friend 
that his doctors had given him only three days to live. "Don't bother to write," he 
said, and then he added those words so lately on the lips of Caryl Chessman: 
"we'll meet in the morning." 4 

Words like that are important to me. They are important to me because I 
believe them to be true, and their truth is important to me for reasons more im- 
mediate than any hope I may have of going on living forever. It takes some of the 
fever out of my life right here on the earth — some of the haste and some of the 
recklessness. In one sense, if I have forever, I have time — time for reading, time 
for thinking, time for friendship, time for service. In another sense, if I have for- 
ever, I have no time at all — no time for carelessness, no time for hatred, no time 
for cruelty; for I shall have to live with myself for a long, long time, and building, 
I had better build well. But in both senses, immortality is important to me: it 
makes a difference — or it ought to make a difference — in the life I live every day. 

There are many people, however, who do not believe in immortality, and 
when I add time to the roll of my mountains, its presence on the list is not de- 
pendent on that faith. When the young Winston Churchill was studying at 
Sandhurst, there was an Egyptian at the school, and to the surprise of almost 
everyone, he showed no interest in digging for ancient Roman pottery in the fields 
around the institution. Pressed for an explanation, he replied that he was "not 
much interested in modern art." 5 And however unhappy the Romans might have 
been about his attitude, you have to say that the Egyptian had a commendable 
perspective. Whatever we may think about our own immortality, there is no deny- 
ing the fact that the world has been here for a long time, and in spite of all man's 
threats against it, the world is likely to be here for a long time to come. People 
have existed on the earth for many thousands of years, and the chance is still 
great that they will exist on it for more thousands. 

The further consideration, which makes these thoughts relevant to my pres- 
ent purpose, is that when the fathers eat sour grapes, the children's teeth are set 
on edge. People will still be alive on the earth when I am dead — people whose, 
opportunities for significant existence will depend in large part on the way that 
I have lived before them. There is nothing I can do to change the past, but the 
manner of my life today affects not only today but also tomorrow. "When the 
cities lie at the monster's feet, there are left the mountains." What mountains? 
Fourth, the mountain of time, whose endlessness rebukes my despair, whose avenues 
invite my exploration, and whose infinite potentiality beseeches my faithfulness. 

"When the cities lie at the monster's feet, there are left the mountains." If I 
were being graduated from college today, I hope that I should not forget them. 
I hope that in their rugged peaks I should find not only a refuge but also a mandate.

ALUMNAE COUNCIL MEETINGS 




Friday Evening Dinner 
Woodland Dining Room 



The Twelfth Annual Lasell Alumnae Council Meetings were held on April 
1 and 2, I960 at Rand Hall. President Elizabeth Harrington Logan '49 opened 
the Saturday morning meeting, welcomed the group and introduced the members 
of the Board of Management of Lasell Alumnae, Inc. and the two delegates from 
the newly-formed Long Island Division of the Greater New York Club, Beryl 
Schelhorn Frey '55 and Joan Wolfe Wickham x-'49, who were the guests at this 
year's Council. 

Libby told of the new buildings at Lasell and that the Alumnae had furnished 
the living room in Ordway House and extended an invitation to all interested to 
visit the buildings. She reported on the Alumnae Scholarships awarded this year 
and spoke briefly of the American Alumni Council meetings which were attended 
by representatives from Lasell Alumnae, Inc. Libby announced that the reunion 
plan adopted last year will be continued this year. Alumnae Day on June 11, I960 
will feature the all-class catered luncheon served "under the big tent" on the 
Recreation Field. 

Dr. Packard thanked the Alumnae for inviting Mrs. Packard and him to the 
Social Hour and Council Dinner on Friday evening and extended an invitation 
to tea at the White House at the close of the meetings. He spoke briefly about 
current activities on campus, told of the great need for a Student Center and a 
building to house the Secretarial Department. 

After a recess during which coffee was served, Libby introduced the guest 
speaker, Mr. Edward H. Turner, vice president for development at Colby College. 
His topic was Capital Funds and he emphasized the importance of careful planning 
in advance for a long-range program and stressed the fact that one must create 
an atmosphere for giving. 

A panel discussion was this year's innovation for the afternoon session. 
With Libby Logan as moderator, the panel included Marjorie MacClymon '32, 
Dorothy Inett Taylor '30, Priscilla Alden Wolfe '19 and Louise Tardivel Higgins 
'37. They reported on conditions pertaining to Class Secretaries, Clubs, Current 
Events at the college and the Alumnae Fund. A general discussion and question 
period followed.

ANNUAL MEETING OF LASELL 
ALUMNAE, INC 

The festivities of Alumnae Day, June 11, I960, were concentrated for the 
second successive year "Under the Tent" on the Recreation Field. Reunioners — 
nearly 450 of them — registered at alumnae headquarters in Plummer Library, 
enjoyed morning coffee, met old friends and toured the Old and New spots on 
campus. 

At eleven-thirty Elizabeth Harrington Logan '49 called to order the annual 
meeting of Lasell Alumnae, Inc. Libby welcomed all present and gave a brief 
resume of the year's progress at the college. She announced that Dr. Blake Tewks- 
bury has been appointed Lasell's new president and that Dr. Richard Packard will 
continue in his former position as Chairman of the Social Studies Department. 
It was also announced that the Board of Management had voted to have a portrait 
of Dr. Guy M. Winslow reproduced in color and presented to the college. 

Alumnae Fund Chairman, Louise Tardivel Higgins '37, reported that the 1959- 
60 campaign was the most successful to date and extended thanks to Mr. Robert 
Brandriff, who served as Director. Winners of Alumnae Scholarships for 1960-61 
were announced by Shirley Gould Chesebro '33. 

Priscilla Alden Wolfe '19 extended greetings from the Board of Trustees, 
of which she is Chairman, and congratulated the Alumnae on their support of 
the Fund. She also encouraged all to ask questions and to take an active interest 
in the alumnae program. 

Libby next introduced the president and treasurer of the Class of I960, 
Martha Yerkes and Janet Sawyer, daughter of Frances Wheeler Sawyer '31. They 
presented a check in the amount of $780 to the Alumnae Fund and this contribution 
automatically entitles each member of the graduating class to membership in 
Alumnae, Inc. for the coming year. 

Advantages of having the annual business meeting at the time of Annual 
Council Meetings were discussed and a motion was made and passed to change 
Article VI of the Constitution and By-Laws to read: "The annual meeting of 
Lasell Alumnae, Inc. shall be held at the time of the Annual Alumnae Council 
Meetings." 

The slate of officers for 1960-61 was read by Priscilla Parmenter Madden '37, 
and it was accepted as read. Alumnae elected include: President, Elizabeth Har- 
rington Logan '49; 1st Vice President, Lillian Reese Roche '50; 2d Vice President, 
Diane Palady Barry '49; Recording Secretary, Priscilla Parmenter Madden '37; 
Corresponding Secretary, Lillian Feneley Cooley '45; Treasurer, Ruth Turner 
Crosby '42; Assistant Treasurer, Ruth Busivell Isaacson '36; Alumnae Clubs 
Advisor, Dorothy lnett Taylor '30; Alumnae Fund Chairman, Louise Tardivel 
Higgins '37; and Scholarship Committee Chairman, Shirley Gould Chesebro '33. 
Directors for 1960-61 are: Priscilla Alden Wolfe '19, Antoinette Meritt Smith '23, 
Elaine Toivne Batson '43, Betty Williams McGowan '47 and Elizabeth Sleight 
Dexter '53. Lorraine Anderson Crabtree '45 is chairman of the Nominating 
Committee, and will be assisted by Marcia Kesseli Allen '47 and Corinne Capone 
McGuiggan '49. 

A check for the Scholarship Fund from the Chicago Lasell Club was pre- 
sented by Margherita Dike Hallberg '10, a past president and former treasurer 
of the Illinois group.

The Class of 1910 drew an enthusiastic round of applause when nine repre- 
sentatives stood as the reunioning classes answered to Roll Call. Their reunion 
was planned by Josephine Woodward Rand, former president of Lasell Alumnae, 
Inc., while her sister, Nell Woodward Collins, served as chairman for the Class 
of 1915. Also from the 50th Reunion group came several long-distance travelers: 
Julia Hamilton Peters, Great Falls, Montana; Lucy Aldrich Berston, Flint, Michi- 
gan; Reva Burman Batt from St. Louis; and Margherita Dike Hallberg and 
Cornelia Stone from Illinois. Jessie Matte son Roy, president of the Class of 1925, 
came from California; and 1925 also boasted two reunioning "mothers and 
daughters" — Catherine Beecher Wood and Carolyn Wood Brox '59, and Mar- 
garet Gordon Ferguson with daughter, Nancy Ferguson Chapman '59- 
The meeting was adjourned and a box luncheon was enjoyed by all.

September 1, 1960 



To the Alumnae of Lasell Junior College: 

During the past few weeks many of you 
have sent your best wishes at the outset of my 
association with Lasell Junior College. All of 
these letters have demonstrated one of Lasell' s 
greatest resources: the intense loyalty, inter- 
est, and support of her alumnae body. I am 
deeply grateful for this welcome from former 
students, especially since I was a relative 
stranger to Lasell until last July 1. 

You may be certain that I appreciate 
the Lasell tradition. Through the efforts and 
abilities of her governing officers, her 
faculty, students, and alumnae, Lasell has had a 
rich past and enjoys an eminent present. I 
assure you of my own determination that her 
future may be as great. 

Most sincerely yours, 




President

CLASS NEWS . . . 



1889 

In Memoriam: Maude E. Mathews on July 
29, I960 at Belfast, Maine. Miss Mathews, 
one of Lasell's oldest graduates, celebrated 
her 91st birthday on April 1. She is sur- 
vived ■ by a twin sister, Miss Mabel 
Mathews, and several cousins. 



In Memoriam: Nora Burroughs Dilling- 
ham on June 14, I960 in Boston, Mass. For 
many years a resident of Newton, she was 
active in the Trinity Episcopal Church of 
Newton Center and was a member of the 
Algonquin Club. Mrs. Dillingham, presi- 
dent of the Class of 1897, served as a mem- 
ber of the Lasell Corporation from 1940- 
44. She is survived by a brother, Wilbur 
G. Burroughs, of Edwardsville, 111., a niece 
and a nephew. 



1895 

It is always a pleasure to visit with 
Mabel Taylor Gannett, and we were espe- 
cially delighted to welcome 1895's class 
president at her 65th Reunion. Mrs. Gan- 
nett arrived in time for morning coffee at 
Plummer, revisited favorite spots on cam- 
pus, and with the Class of 1910 enjoyed 
luncheon at the President's Home. She was 
accompanied by her daughter and son-in- 
law, Mr. and Mrs. John Elton of Bayside, 
L. I. Mr. Elton is a brother of Mary Elton 
Remig '36, and Mrs. Gannett plans to join 
"Luke" at 1936's 25th in June 1961. 

From Mabel Sawyer Rogers: "I appre- 
ciated the gracious invitation of the col- 
lege to attend the Commencement exercises, 
but regret I cannot accept. Time flies 
rapidly and it seems a long time ago since 
my graduation. May the weather be favor- 
able, the exercises a happy affair, and the 
years ahead for Lasell most successful." 



1900 

In Memoriam: Edith Tidd Bradley '99-'00 
on November 28, 1959. Among Mrs. Brad- 
ley's survivors is her sister, Gertrude Tidd 
Wellman '99-'00, of Shaker Heights, Ohio. 

Other News: In the spring Eva Raymond 
Perkins wrote to Lasell: "When the invita- 
tion came to attend the reunion of classes 
at the college, I was greatly tempted to 
accept, but I am convinced I cannot join 
the other alumnae on campus in June. I 
was so happy at Lasell and think of that 
lovely spot often. It would be so interest- 
ing to see the splendid progress the college 
has made during the years. My very best 
wishes to all for a happy Commencement 
and a successful year ahead." 

Alice Taylor Potter x-'OO, in nearby 
Newton Centre, planned to be at Lasell for 
the 60th Reunion of the Class of 1900, but 
was unable to do so.

leaders joined with members of the medi- 
cal profession in a testimonial dinner event 
marking the 30 years of service given by 
Walter R. Amesbury to the Waltham 
(Mass.) Hospital as treasurer and admin- 
istrator. Program features were the unveil- 
ing of a portrait of Mr. Amesbury and an- 
nouncement that hospital trustees and offi- 
cers have designated the East Corridor in 
Sanderson II Building as the "Walter R. 
Amesbury Suite." Mr. Amesbury, a former 
treasurer of the college, is the husband of 
Jane Ford Amesbury x-'04 and father of 
Virginia Amesbury Stone '38. 



1905 

The Class of 1905 reported for its 55th 
Reunion via written word and in thought 
only. In answer to the invitation from the 
college to attend the Commencement fes- 
tivities, Eila Patterson Rogers replied: "I 
am a resident head at the University of 
Oregon and our term closes on June 12th, 
and I very much regret being unable to 
come to Auburndale. There are eleven 
members remaining of the Class of '05 and 
we have a round-robin letter which has 
been in continuous circulation since our 
graduation. 

"In 1961 one of my grandsons will be 
graduating from Princeton Theological 
Seminary and I hope to come East at that 
time. He is the son of my elder son, a 
sales representative here in Portland, Ore- 
gon. My daughter, Dorothy, is the city 
librarian in Woodburn, and my younger 
son, Jack, is credit manager for McKesson 
and Robbins Wholesale Drugs in Eugene, 
Oregon. I have eight grandchildren and 
one great-granddaughter. I shall look for- 
ward to seeing Lasell — the college has 
grown and changed a great deal since ou\ 
day." 

And from Nell Jones Yeomans in Dan- 
ville, Illinois: "So sorry not to be able to 
accept the very kind invitation. My three 
years at Lasell are a beautiful memory. 



Our class round-robin letter is now on the 
desk waiting to be sent on its way." 

Bertha Aiken Meyers x-'05 writes: "I 
have a very warm spot in my heart for 
Lasell. Its growth has been wonderful to 
watch and I know it will keep going for- 
ward. My very best wishes for a most suc- 
cessful year ahead." 

From Los Gatos, California Barbara Vail 
Bosworth sent word she would not be able 
to come, and very best wishes for a fair 
and happy Commencement weekend came 
also from Grace Rowe Vail, Helen Royse 
Shirk x-'05 and Frances Buzelle Lamprey 
x-'05. 



1906 

Mrs. Harry Carlow 

(Edith Anthony), Secretary 

60 Church Green, Taunton, Mass. 

At Commencement time Mary-Florine 
Thielens Peeples x-'06 wrote to Dr. Pack- 
ard: "I was on campus for my 50th Re- 
union and plan to surely be at Lasell next 
June. Am looking forward to a short June 
vacation with my son William in Florida, 
and leave on August 24th for two months 
in Europe. There I will add to my collec- 
tions of shawls, fans, dolls and scarfs 
which I use in my lectures with songs and 
dances. Have now added 'Hawaii' to the 
repertoire. Best wishes always to the col- 
lege." 



1907 

We extend sincere sympathy to Class 
Agent Lilian Douglass Heeb, whose hus- 
band passed away in February I960. Mrs. 
Heeb writes: "Am in the process of selling 
the large home and expect to move to a 
new and smaller one here in the Covina 
area. Plan to continue my various civic 
activities."

50th Reunion Group 

1910 
50th REUNION 

Nothing, not even in the State of Caro- 
lina, could have been finer than our 50th 
Reunion ! If we could do it all over again 
the only change in the entire affair 7 would 
make would have made it possible for all 
our living 1910-ers to be present! 

We graduated a class of 27 and 21 of us 
are alive 50 years later! Alive and alert! 
That "alert" is due to the loyal efforts of 
Olive Bates Dumas, who, as Class Life Sec- 
retary, has kept us in touch with each other 
through a remarkable round-robin letter 
— consequently we really know each other 
in spite of separations. 

Just seven of us were able to return this 
June, and two x-'lO-ers appeared! Our 
fartherest-away gal, Julia Hamilton Peters, 
came first — she lives in Montana and 
California; Reva Berman Batt came from 
St. Louis; Lucy Aldrich Berston from Mich- 
igan; Cornelia Stone and Margherita Dike 
Hallberg motored from Illinois, Cornelia 
bringing messages from the Chappell twins 
(Constance and Mary x-'lO), who are 
teaching in Japan; "Mike" Steenman Bryant 
x-'lO came from Buffalo; Harriet Wetzel 
Bryan x-'lO from Longmeadow; and Julia 
Crafts Sheridan drove down from her cele- 
brated Squaw Mountain Inn on Moosehead 
Lake. Of course, I live in Brookline, so we 
used this place as our headquarters. Eight 
of us slept here the last night and I could 
never express in a few words what fun that 
was ! 

Our Reunion began to "get up steam" 



through Christmas cards. At first, I was 
sure we . would also have Nell Carneal 
Drew, Ruth Kelsey, Mary Lumbard Court- 
ney, Mildred Snyder Grant and Marion 
Hale Bottomley — but we were not that 
lucky! A telegram from Helen Hood, mes- 
sage from Mildred Goodall Fairbanks, pra- 
lines from Mildred Grant and scores of 
notes of good wishes were sent to us. Right 
from the first we had the backing and con- 
stant help of that "Little-But-O-My" Alum- 
nae Secretary, Marjorie MacClymon '32. 
We never can thank you enough, Mac! 

We were the special guests of Acting 
President Dr. Richard Packard and Mrs. 
Packard at a delicious luncheon at The 
White House — there we met the incom- 
ing President and his charming wife. Dr. 
Tewksbury will remind you of Dr. Guy M. 
Winslow. We all felt that Lasell is in very 
good hands, indeed ! 

Every "old girl" is deeply indebted to 
the present Board of Trustees, headed by 
Priscilla Alden Wolfe '19- They have ac- 
complished many fine things for Lasell. We 
were particularly impressed with the new 
buildings, the sound financial background 
and a long waiting list of prospective stu- 
dents. 

— Jo Woodward Rand

Marion Harvey Pitz x-'12, Nellie Harvey

the National Open and Amateur golf tour-

den occupy most of her time. Also very 
active in church work.

church and Lasell." 

Martha Schumann Laubenstein: Martha 
has three children, ten grandchildren. 

Susan Tiffany: We shall not forget this 
wonderful classmate whom we were fortu-

just a month before Sue left us. 

Gladys Wilkes McCutchen: Due to ill- 
ness in the family, Gladys was not able to

Harry and me for that gala occasion. 
Madeline Farmer Ryder's husband was 
there too and Perk was accompanied by 
Myra Davis '95-'97. The eight of us wore 
the familiar little orange and black em- 
blems and had a wonderful time together. 
Auburndale and the Lasell campus never 
looked lovelier and we were indeed sorry 
more of you were not with us.

160 E. 48th St., New York, N. Y. 

The College gratefully acknowledges a 
specific bequest in the will of the late Mar- 
garet Powell Weaver x-'17 of Eastland, 
Texas. She was the daughter of the late 
Julia Hogg Powell '94, and a niece of Vir- 
ginia Hogg Wynne '87-'90 and M. Lulie 
Hogg '88, both deceased. 



1918 

Mrs. Carl L. Eaton 

(Mildred Cary), Secretary 

5 Grove St., Winchester, Mass. 

In Memoriam: Mary Latham Foss x-'18 on 
May 25, I960. Mary had great courage and 
was cheerful to the end, even though she 
was seriously ill for many months. Her 
sunny disposition and ready smile will be 
remembered by us all. Our sincere sym- 
pathy is extended to her husband, Dr. 
Merton Foss of Brockton (Mass.), and her 
two daughters. 

Other News: Your Secretary spent three 
delightful days in April visiting Helen 
Smith Stone in New Canaan, Connecticut 
and Harriet Fera French in Scarsdale, New 
York. Those two gals do not seem to 
change a bit from the 1918 days, and al- 
though we are all grandmothers several 
times over, the old spark and pep are pres- 
ent when "Lasell girls get together." 

On August 2d I flew to Duluth, Min- 
nesota for a long-promised visit with Gin 
Moore Starkey '17. The young man who 
had the seat beside me laughingly warned 
me I would not recognize my friend after 
forty-two years, but he took back the words 
when he saw the warm welcome Gin 
greeted me with at the Duluth airport. My 
two weeks there I shall always consider 
among the high spots of my life. One eve- 
ning Gin's sister Carolyn (Moore '14) en- 
tertained the two of us and Mary Binga- 
man '14 for dinner. 

Was sorry to have missed the annual 
Lasell Cape parties — ■ at Ruth Newcomb's 
and Mid Strain Nutter's ('17). It is always 
such fun to get together at the summer 
picnics. 

I am still watching the mails for news 
of you '18-ers. The postman has not been 
overburdened with letters. Please!!!

She has now returned to her duties at the 
Embassy in Paris. 

Mercie Nichols writes: "Spent a delight- 
ful Memorial Day weekend with Priscilla 
Alden Wolfe and her husband at their New 
Hampton (N. H.) farm. It was fun to see 
Gail Wilson Boynton '18, who stopped on 
her way to Maine, and we had a brief 
glimpse of Olive Chase Mayo in Laconia. 
Wished they, with Ethel Ramage Fisk, now 
living in White River Junction (Vt.), had 
been able to make the get-together Pris- 
cilla had planned. Better luck next time."

Mrs. S. S. Cline

Ruth Hayden most graciously consented 
to take charge of making arrangements for 
the 40th Reunion of the Class of 1920. On 
Saturday, June 11, she was joined by Mar- 
guerite Hardy Chandler and Charlotte 
Parker Simpson. We share with you news 
gathered from the returned questionnaires 
— and look forward to seeing many more 
classmates at our next reunion. 

Dorothy Balch McCormack: "Very sorry 
I cannot attend our 40th. Doris Crawford 
Clovis has written me but it is impossible 
to get away at this time of year. Would 
love to see our classmates and compare 
grey hairs, waist measures and our lives 
since graduation." 

Elaine Bass Pierce: "My husband and I 
have been away from home for nearly five 
months while he has been recuperating 
from a serious illness. See no prospect of 
returning to Lasell for our 40th. However, 
I am in Boston frequently so that if I should 
find myself there on June 11th, I shall try 
to go out to school for the day. Greetings 
and good wishes to all."

plans were made In the winter for a Ber- 
muda trip and the 11th is departure day. 
It would be so interesting to see the gals 

— I am fat and greying but still keep 
quite active ■ — - the four grandchildren wear 
me down to the knees in about fifteen min- 
utes. Have intended to call Betty Stephens 
Fuller but just haven't done it. Saw Jimmy 
James in the Back Bay Station several 
vears ago and she looked just wonderful. 
Do you ever hear from Lois Perry or Kay 
Ladd? I have been trying to locate Gladys 
Keniston. Please convey my very best 
wishes to all who are at Reunion. I still 
have the dress I wore to the Junior Prom 

— thought my granddaughters would love 
to play in it — it does not seem to fit me 
now." 

Lillian G. Grant: "Unless I happen to 
learn of someone from this area who is 
going to Lasell on the 11th, I do not think 
I'll have the pleasure of reunioning with 
you. At present I am first vice president of 
the Manchester Board of Realtors, con- 
nected also with the Real Estate Board of 
Greater Hartford and a member of the 
State and National Associations of Real 
Estate Boards. My business and church 
work occupy most of my time, but garden- 
ing comes in for some attention also — 
both flowers and vegetables. This year, 
however, when the man came to plow, I 
told him to shrink the garden on all sides. 
Please give my sincere good wishes to all." 

Freda Griffin Leining: "Sorry not to

"Fate plays funny tricks on us some- 
times. Had anyone asked me the day we 
graduated in 1920 if I would return for 
my 40th, I would have said Of Course. 
Now look what's happened: our only child 
and his darling wife are expecting their 
first baby on June 7th. If the little one 
arrives a little early — you know I shall 
be with you. 

"During the past few years I have seen 
several of our contemporaries: Doris 
Rogers Williams in Florida and last week- 
end Edith Vance Nicholson '19 and her 
husband were our house guests. Still in 
close contact with Lillian Doane Maddigan 
'21, Eloise Carey Wadley and Ruth Raw- 
lings Mott '21. Frances Heath Thompson's 
son called on us one day — he was as- 
signed 'on duty' in this area. 

"My four years at Lasell were my most 
precious years — my ideals and standards 
were formed there and I have tried to live 
up to them. I still believe some good news 
is surely coming and I am always 'Well and 
Happy.' My love to one and all."

Celina Belle Isle Forman writes to Helen 
Beede: "The daughter of a friend is very 
interested in Lasell. She will be graduated 
from high school in 1961 and we will 
much appreciate having a catalog sent to 
her. When the LEAVES arrives, I read it 
from cover to cover. I have heard from 
many of our classmates, but the only two I 
have seen in recent years are Marian Bliven 
MacDonald and Lillian Doane Maddigan. 
Does it seem possible next June brings our 
40th Reunion?"

Dear '22-ers, 

For the first time, all class secretaries 
were invited to attend the Annual Alumnae 
Council Meetings held in Rand Hall on 
April 2, I960. I wish each and every one 
might have been there for all phases of 
college life - — ■ academic, financial and phys- 
ical were discussed. 

Jo Holbrook Metzger and I found much 
to chat about between sessions. For news 
of "Kinks" Hemingway Killam's family, 
we are happy to say that Betty will be a 
freshman at Lasell this year, and Caroline, 
a member of the Class of 1957, was mar- 
ried in April. "Junior" was married in 
June, Mallory's first child was born that 
month too, and Luther's third child arrived 
in April. How proud Kinks would have 
been of her fine family. 

Liz and Prudence Jones, daughters of 
Naomi Davis, are in college this year, and 
Linda Collett, Ethelle Cleale's younger 
daughter, received her degree from Lasell 
in June. 

Elizabeth Madiera Campbell and hus- 
band, after three months in Africa, re- 
turned to Vermont via Greece, Italy and 
Morocco. Libby says she is glad she didn't 
wait any longer to make this trip — "sim- 
ply wonderful but strenuous." 

Theresa Thompson Osborne is produc- 
tion chairman for the Waldo County 
(Maine) Red Cross. One of their chief 
projects is working for the hospitalized 
veterans at Togus. 

The Class extends sincere sympathy to 
Cherry Buchanan Thomson, whose husband 
Frank passed away on June 5, I960 in 
Syracuse, New York. 

To have Antoinette Meritt Smith '23 
living in the shadow of Lasell is good 
news for all '22-ers who look forward to 
having her always as our "special" guest 
on reunion years. Speaking of Reunion — 
start saving now for June 1962. It will be 
here before we know it !

served as the senior judge of the "Mrs.

Reunioners from 1925 



35th REUNION 

Our long-looked-for 35th Reunion has 
come and gone. It was by far the most 
successful and happiest reunion our class 
has ever enjoyed. The smooth planning by 
Martha Wilcox Hills, Reunion Chairman, 
contributed largely to the success of this 
occasion. 

We held a short business meeting at 
Alumnae Headquarters, and Ruth Shepard 
Parmenter was elected Class Agent to re- 
place Helen McNab Willand, and Cathe- 
rine Beecher Wood will serve as co-secre- 
tary in place of Helen Black Sprague. A 
small sum of money was collected to care 
for any expense incurred at future re- 
unions. Helen Willand explained the an- 
nual giving program and urged the girls to 
acknowledge the initial class agent letter 
each year — a contributor to the Fund is 
automatically a subscriber to the Leaves - — 
and we all agreed the class column is our 
one means of "keeping in touch." 

It was good to have our former class 
president, Jessie Matteson Ray, with us. 
She came from California and was en route 
to Europe for the summer. Letters were 
read from Eva-May Mortimer Riffe, Doro- 
thy Cook Reynal, Christine Chamberlin 
Kenney, Helen Wahlquist Wolcott and 
Florence Harding Hallett x-'25. 

Following this brief meeting, we ad- 
journed to the Recreation Field, had a de- 



lightful box lunch and Martha Fish 
Holmes invited us to her lovely home for 
punch and coffee. It was over all too soon 
■ — ■ we were reluctant to leave and all 
agreed with Annette Durkee Harvey, who 
said that the longer we were away from 
each other and from Lasell, the fonder we 
grew of old friends and college days. 

Present at Lasell on June 11, I960 were: 
Elizabeth Batchelder Doten, Esther Harvey 
Switzler, Barbara Bridgeman McHenry 
x-'25, Annette Durkee Harvey, Martha Fish 
Holmes, Martha Wilcox Hills, Helen Mc- 
Nab Willand, Josephine Miller Berry, 
Estelle Jenney, Ruth Shepard Parmenter, 
Margaret Gordon Ferguson, Catherine 
Beecher Wood, Dorothy Keeler Stewart, 
Ruth Mayes Longmire, Helen Black 
Sprague, Gertrude Kendall Lund, Jessie 
Matteson Ray, Mildred Whyte Goddard, 
Miriam Smith Dawson x-'25, Ruby Hola- 
bird Keeler and Barbara Cushing Jenkins. 

The response to our questionnaires was 
most gratifying. It is not too late to return 
yours, girls — send them along and we 
will print the news in future Leaves. Sin- 
cere thanks to Helen McNab Willand, 
Martha Fish Holmes and Helen Black 
Sprague for their able handling of the 
questionnaires. 

In addition to news previously printed 
in the Leaves, we have the following bits 
of information: 



LASELL LEAVES 



25 



Barbara Bridgeman McHenry x-'25: A 
devoted homemaker, paints and decorates 
as a hobby. Has one married son. 

Elizabeth Batchelder Doten: Enjoys two 
young grandsons, who live nearby in North 
Reading, Mass. 

Charlena Clough Long: She and her hus- 
band recently sold their business in 
Albany, Vermont. Charlena teaches piano, 
but her real time-consuming and best-loved 
task is baby sitting for the young grand- 
children. 

Annette Durkee Harvey: Has two sons 
and is another devoted grandmother. 

Martha Fish Holmes: A loving home- 
maker — mother of three children, two 
boys and a girl. 

Eva-May Mortimer Riffe: Is now com- 
panion-housekeeper to Jessie Matteson 
Ray's mother in San Francisco. Eva-May 
has three sons. 

Virginia Smieding Fenn x-'25: Lives 
nearby in Marblehead. Has one daughter. 

Jean Smith Stiles: Four children, five 
grandchildren. 

Alberta Wight Wilson: A busy doctor's 
wife. The Wilsons have two children, 
three grandchildren. Alberta's only daugh- 
ter, Barbara, was graduated from Lasell in 
1954. 

Isobel Rodier Fair: Active in Business 
and Professional Woman's Club in St. 
Petersburg, Florida. Has one daughter, two 
grandchildren. 

Martha Wilcox Hills: A busy home- 
maker and enjoys tray painting and copper 
enameling. Martha has two sons. 

Helen McNab Willand: Modestly does 
not list any "occupation" or "hobby." We 
all know how loyal and faithful she has 
been in the work of Lasell Alumnae, Inc., 
having been a member of the Corporation 
as well as our Class Agent. Helen has one 
son. 

Christine Chamberlin Kenney: Her ad- 
dress: 16330 Alexander Avenue, Los Gatos, 
Calif. Her husband's recent illness pre- 
vented her coming this year. 

Barbara Cushing Jenkins: Another busy 
grandmother. Her married son has three 
children; #2 son will be married in Octo- 
ber; and #3 son is stationed with the Air 
Force in New Mexico. 

We were indeed sorry to learn of the 
passing of Betty Parker Bridgeman x-'25 
on May 7, I960. Sincere sympathy is ex- 
tended to her husband, Mr. William V. 
Bridgeman, of Winthrop, Mass., her two 
sons, and to her two sisters, Charlotte 
Parker Simpson '20 and Eleanor Parker 
Weldon (W.P. '21-'23).

1926 

Mrs. Elmer J. Bloom 

(Mariesta Howland), Secretary 

415 West Crestwood Drive, Peoria, 111. 

Well, the news gathers over the months 
until a respectable amount of '26 bulletins 
accrues by the July deadlines ! Our class 
president, Molly Witschief Wood, has a 
position with a travel agency and has en- 
joyed trips to Puerto Rico, Mexico, Ber- 
muda and the Virgin Islands. Molly's 
older son (25) was graduated from West 
Point in June and is being married in July. 
Her younger son (23) is in college and 
already married. 

Peg Wilding Norton is currently caught 
up in festive wedding plans too — Gra- 
ham, her older son, now with the Air Force 
in Germany, is engaged to a Danish girl 
and is being wed in Denmark this summer, 
and Peg, with Robert (17) and Nancy 
(15), fly to the wedding. 

Dot Denney Edge had an "all home for 
Christmas," for besides Denney, Jr., now 
newly-graduated from high school, young 
Peter (21) had leave from his Coast Guard 
station on Cape May and was with his 
family and fiancee, Drusilla Frazier of 
Catonsville, Maryland. 

Anita Krakauer Doerr, who returned last 
winter from Europe, had her sister Bertha 
(Krakauer Ryan '24) with her in Torreon, 
Mexico for a month and is further over- 
joyed that sister Miriam, long overseas in 
an Italian consulate, has received a transfer 
back to Mexico. 

Madeline Roth White sailed February 28 
from New Orleans with "Herb" to traverse 
the east coast of South America, enjoying 
Buenos Aires, Rio de Janeiro, then flying 
over the Andes to other South American 
cities, and returning to New York by 
plane. "Rothie's" elder son, Curtis, is 
being married July 20 to a charming girl 
named Jacqueline White (no relation) in 
Kansas City. "Jackie" is an occupational 
therapy major in college and intends to 
continue her studies after marriage. 

"Rothie" had a Christmas card from 
1926's Student Council president, Betty 
Day Bracken, who wrote of a '26-er long- 
time "lost" to my files — her roommate, 
Betty Smith Lum. Betty Lum's husband, 
Richard, was one of the aviation officers 
killed in World War II. Ginny Wood Mc- 
Kay's husband too must be added to the 
list of our service casualties — he was one 
of the officers killed in a crash between a 
freighter and passenger liner last spring.

LASELL LEAVES 



Betty Day Bracken's own news was that her 
husband has left private-school teaching for 
the utilities business in Fall River and that 
daughter Nancy (14) is now as tall as 
Betty. 

Georgia Parrish Campbell is another 
'26-er from whom it's a pleasant surprise to 
hear. Her husband, Sidney, is a real estate 
broker in California and eldest son, Jack, 
a graduate of Leland Stanford law school 
('58), practices in La Mesa. Georgia writes: 
"He and his family live close by and we 
feel very fortunate, for they have two ador- 
able children, Jennifer and Justin." Of the 
other sons, she adds: "David (22) is a sen- 
ior at San Francisco State. He is an Eng- 
lish major, and wants to write, but will 
probably teach English at a college first. 
Steve (18) is a freshman at the University 
of Arizona, so we have an excuse for lots 
of trips . to Phoenix, which we love." 
Georgia is president of her Woman's Club 
of 500 members and was also planning a 
trip East this past spring. 

And further news trickled in of the '26 
Midwestern group! 

Marion Brown Schlosser wrote during 
the holidays: "I had luncheon in La Porte, 
Indiana, recently with Babs Ingwersen Pope 
x-'26; Charlotte Young Allen x-'26; Jane 
Wilson Beckman; Betty Saxton Wilson — 
a most enjoyable day." Of her own family 
in Joliet, "Brownie" wrote: "Johnny was 
graduated from college in '58 and is busi- 
ness manager of our family drugstore and 
clinic; he is doing an excellent job and we 
plan to open another store in a new shop- 
ping center here. Jane is at Florida South- 
ern and is engaged to a young man from 
Northfield, Illinois. Ann is a senior in 
high school. We are Florida-bound for 
Easter." Since that letter, young Jane's 
wedding announcement to Raymond Ade, 
Jr. (July 2), has arrived. 

And it would not be a proper "colynm," 
without adding news of our indefatigable 
"Andy" Gage. Last winter Margaret An- 
derson sprained her ankle very severely, 
tearing some muscles, but "kept going," 
conducting her classes in a wheelchair ! 
Her whole will was bent toward getting 
absolutely ambulant by June in order to 
carry out the European jaunt she and Dan 
were planning, and sure enough — they 
left Sacramento for Illinois in early June; 
spent a weekend with the Anderson clan in 
Kankakee; then flew to Washington, D. C. to 
see other friends and relatives; spent 3 
days in New York and sailed June 18th on 
a Dutch boat for The Hague. They were 
then to pick up their new car, a Peugeot. 
and proceed to France — the chateau coun- 
try (after 3 days in Paris), Avignon, the 



Basque-land, northern Spain, San Remo, 
Turin, Lake Como, Austria, Switzerland 
and longer stays in West Germany. August 
would find them in Dublin, Ireland visit- 
ing friends and they were to sail for home 
in late August bound for Quebec — ship- 
ping the Peugeot too ! 

Dan's trips are always "just for his will" 
in that he is a seeker of material for eco- 
nomic and travel articles. He published an 
interesting article in the Oregon Business 
Review on the observations he made while 
in the "banana republics" last year. 

Two happy reunions starred my days in 
I960 ! Elmer and I finally got away in May 
for our annual Florida "trek," flying down 
for a fortnight's stay at the Bel-Aire in 
Miami Beach. And after eight long years, 
I saw our beloved Ginnie ("A. Mouse") 
Farrington again! We were dinner guests 
of the Farringtons at their beautiful new 
home in Cutler Ridge, South Miami and 
spent a delightful long evening on their 
patio-terrace reminiscing and catching up 
on the news. Ginnie is as full of fun as 
ever, and this blitheness of spirit after the 
vicissitudes since 1950 — her mother's in- 
validism and death; her wonderful hus- 
band's terrible injuries in a motor accident 
(he was in a cast for many months) — re- 
affirms all the marvelous qualities one felt 
in her always. Bob, Sr. is now fully re- 
covered from the multiple fractures; healthy 
and busy in his profession of administra- 
tive accountancy; Bob, Jr. (23), tall, 
poised, brillianr, a graduate student in Gov- 
ernment at the University of Miami, was a 
companionable co-host, and daughter 
Carolyn (Lasell, '51), though far away in 
Connecticut where she and her husband 
have an enchanting new house, keeps in 
touch and sends pictures of baby Douglas 
Carson, Jr. Gin's 93-year-old father was in 
the hospital with a fractured hip at the 
time of our visit and we missed him from 
the circle. 

The second "happy reunion" was with 
my "Lasell Jr. sister," bridesmaid and fel- 
low-Europe-traveller, Marta Aspegren Parker, 
Lasell '27. Maris and I toured East 
alone in late June (my husband was de- 
toured in Illinois by estate details and 
young Peb had flown to Bermuda for a 
summer job after his graduation exercises 
at Lake Forest Academy) and we paused in 
Pittsford, New York to see Marta and her 
family. During the visit we made arrange- 
ments for Marta and her two attractive 
young sons to drive to Scituate and be with 
us at the cottage for a few days. 

So July 9th the three appeared on our 
doorstep, and we had a real "houseparty" 
of five — picnicking, swimming, and 



LASELL LEAVES 



27 



launching Peb's motorboat, a task to which 
Maris welcomed the manpower of Marta's 
husky six-foot lads ! 

The only other Bloom news is that Peb, 
after graduating with literary and athletic 
awards, has chosen Williams College as his 
alma mater and will matriculate there Sep- 
tember 19- Maris has finished her junior 
year at Smith with top grades in her major 
of History, and with her twin honors of 
election to president of Jordan House and 
appointee to the college House of Repre- 
sentatives was invited to participate in 
Smith's Ivy Chain on Commencement Day. 

Dorothy Hale Brown has enjoyed re- 
maining closer to Lasell than many of us 
for her daughter, Charlotte, was a member 
of this year's graduating class. The family 
were to leave for California directly after 
Commencement instead of returning to the 
Brown home in Massena, New York. Dot 
and husband Cal were at Lasell for the 
Father-Daughter weekend in March, and of 
that particular occasion Dot writes: "The 
Orphean concert was beautiful. On Satur- 
day I lunched with Dorothy Spooner Cleve- 
land and Eleanor Butterworth, and we had 
hoped Dorothy Aseltine Wadsworth would 
join us. However, she and Herb came to 
Newtonville — where we stayed with the 
Clevelands ■ — in the evening. It was won- 
derful seeing her again — still the same 
sweet Dottie." 

1927 

Mrs. David Rosen 
(Rosalie Brightman), Secretary 
8 Still St., Brookline 46, Mass. 

Greetings ! 

Word comes that Minerva Damon Lude- 
wig is enjoying her San Francisco apart- 
ment, but adds that she's "an Easterner at 
heart." Besides her golfing, she is taking 
upholstering lessons. Minerva chose San 
Francisco for its fine climate and because 
so many old-time Navy friends were lo- 
cated there. She is planning to tour the 
East soon ■ — visiting "Rothie" (Madeline 
Roth White '26) in Peoria - — and then on 
to New York City, Pittsburgh and Wash- 
ington. 

An impressive announcement arrived her- 
alding a showing of drawings and water 
colors at the Colony Lounge in Washing- 
ton, D. C. by Mary Etta Williams Sharpe. 
The Washington Post commented most flat- 
teringly saying: "Working both in water 
color and in water color combined with ink, 
the artist shows landscapes and figure 
studies. A fine draftsman, she is at her best 
where line dominates wash. Such ink and 



water-color studies as 'Childhood Pets,' 
which is (shudder) a huddle of mice; 
'Pheasants,' 'Indian Summer,' and 'George- 
town Reverie' show the artist at her best." 

I was delighted to have a phone call 
from Doris Wilson Lehners HS '25-'27, a 
Brookline resident during Lasell days, but 
who now lives in West Los Angeles. Her 
husband John, an attorney for the motion 
picture industry, was attending a conven- 
tion in Chicago and Doris came on to the 
Boston area to visit friends and relatives. 
We had a wonderful time at luncheon rem- 
iniscing and I learned that Doris has been 
very active in the Women's Republican 
Club and is a past president of the Repub- 
lican Club of California. She also devotes 
much time to the Assistance League, which 
maintains and supports girls' and boys' 
clubs in Los Angeles. Doris was so proud 
of the fact that last year the boy who rep- 
resented this particular club won top rec- 
ognition and was decorated by President 
Eisenhower in Washington. It was much 
fun to see Doris after all these years and a 
joy to see her looking slim, chic, most at- 
tractive and with the gayest spirit ever. 

Also learned that Gladys Boardman 
Amos x-'27 was among the summer callers 
at Lasell. Gladys, who lives in Delmar, 
N. Y., was on a vacation trip and was in- 
terested to show her daughter the college 
and campus. 

The summer was wonderful and I man- 
aged to spend more time than usual at our 
heavenly spot on the Cape. Then "Donna" 
arrived and what havoc was wrought. 
Being right on the waterfront, we were a 
target and lost trees, shutters, the dock and 
wharf, to say nothing of all the beautiful 
flowers. However, we were very fortunate 

— the water did not get into the house — 
it came within two inches of the top step 

— and we were extremely grateful to have 
the boat safely at the marina. 

Hope, too, the summer was good to each 
of you — and may the fall bring a writing 
mood to all.

By now, Connie Boudiette x-'28 is set- 
tled in her new apartment in Tudor City — 
only a block from her office in the Inter- 
national Paper Company. Connie's address 
is Woodstock Tower, 320 East 42d Street, 
New York 17. Wish we might look in on 
her — or have been around to carry a few 
fragile items during the "move."

From a brief postcard message from 
Eleanor McKenney Black '30 we learn that 
she had a whirl visiting her Woodland 
Park roommate and our classmate, Chris- 
tina Finlayson Dana, in Madison, Wiscon- 
sin. Eleanor wrote enthusiastically about 
Tina's lovely home, and more particularly 
of the. children — Ellis and Anne. For all 
who remember Mrs. Finlayson's hospitality 
and delicious cooking, it will be pleasing 
to know that she has a wonderful home 
with her daughter in Madison. 

In August Caroline Hopkins McLean 
flew with her husband to Denver, from 
which point via rented car they toured the 
West, visiting #3 son, Bob, on summer 
hospital duty at the Bluff (Utah) Indian 
Reservation. Hoppie visited Natalie Robbe 
Hemmett when in New York in June to see 
daughter Anne off to Europe. 

Bettie Smith Scollon is now living at 
15403 Second Street East, Madeira Beach, 
Florida. The Scollons were properly settled 
before "Donna" and were understandably 
happy to find things still pretty well in 
order when they were able to return home 
after the hurricane. Janet is in Florida too, 
having had a fine reunion with former 
schoolmates in East Aurora (N. Y.) plus an 
exciting "binge" and enchanting holiday 
with sister Cynthia in the City. Janet is a 
high school senior this year and Bettie and 
Tom are setting up their business in Flor- 
ida — incidentally, they have a wonderful 
line of gift-advertising items. Should you 
want help with Christmas ideas, do drop 
them a line ! 

I can't expect a line every day — but 
when one is far away a line is always so 
welcomed to keep us in touch. Remember 
— we all think of you all.

Mrs. Allan Van Demark 

(Phyllis Beck), Secretary 
25 Maple St., Lockport, NY. 

This interesting letter came from Flor- 
ence Fitch Osborne in May I960: "I am 
very happy to report that after an interrup- 
tion of 31 years, I took up where I left off 
with my studies in English at Lasell and 
fulfilled all requirements for a B.A. at the 
University of Connecticut last February. In 
June I shall receive my diploma magna 
cum laude. Have already started Graduate 
School, but due to the fact that I work 
every day at' my syndicated bridge column, 
I am not pressing the M.A. 

"Returning to college has been a very 
worthwhile experience and I am indebted 



to Lasell's high standing for every credit I 
earned there was given full value in trans- 
fer even though there had been a lapse of 
29 years! 

"My husband, a teacher, is now a candi- 
date for a Ph.D. at the University of Con- 
necticut; our daughter Lucille is a sopho- 
more at Pembroke College and son Harold 
is in his third year at the Kent School. 

"I want to offer a word of appreciation, 
not only for the many happy hours I spent 
at Lasell but for the profitable work done 
there. Please give my regards to all '29-ers, 
to Miss Beede and Miss Blackstock." 

Damaris Harlow, daughter of Constance 
Chalmers, was graduated from Wellesley 
College in June, and her younger sister, 
Frances, was voted to the National Honor 
Society. Frances will graduate from the 
Orono (Me.) High School in 1961. 

Mary Groff Cooper's new address is 243 
North West End Avenue, Lancaster, Penna.

17 Lowell Street, Andover, Mass. 

Dear Girls: 

June 11th and our 30th Reunion were 
perfect in all respects. Even the weather- 
man was more than good to us. 

Marjorie Magune Curtis '31 — she and 
her husband were our weekend guests — 
and I arrived at Alumnae Headquarters 
shortly after ten and were soon joined by 
Phyllis Jensen Swenson. As we stood talk- 
ing and drinking coffee our eyes scanned 
the crowd to see who would next appear. 
Sue Morgan Williams and Jeanette Gessner 
Somers emerged through the throng, fol- 
lowed by Bobby Morgan Riederer, Libby 
Day Cook and Frances Smith Miller. Then 
did tongues start to wag! 

We followed the crowd across campus to 
the Recreation Field, where the Annual 
Meeting of Alumnae, Inc. was held and 
there found Evelyn Brownell Inman, Ruth 
Ericson Brown and Joan Collier Cooper. 
Joan was accompanied by her daughter

Representing 1930 



Carolyn, who attends Framingham State 
Teachers College. There were twelve of us 
gathered at the luncheon table — and 
"Gege" Somers has movies of this highly 
successful party. 

Early in the afternoon we held a class 
meeting at one of the rooms in Plummer 
Library. (We missed you, Eleanor McKen- 
ney Black - — ■ where were you?) A telegram 
of greetings was sent by Helen Roberts 
Holt and she requested we elect a new class 
secretary. Frances Smith Miller agreed to 
carry on for the next five years, and Eliza- 
beth Day Cook has replaced Phyllis Jensen 
Swenson as Class Agent. Our many and 
sincere thanks to both Helen and Phyllis 
for their years of service. 

Phyllis has compiled the interesting bits 
of news gathered from the questionnaires 
— and those items will follow in later edi- 
tions of the LEAVES. We were all delighted 
to learn the good news from Ruth Lenahan, 
who became Mrs. Carl Kask in October 
1959 and now lives in Bellows Falls, Vt. 
Beatrice Alderman was married in 1957 to 
Mr. Austin Nelson and they operate a large 
farm in Waldoboro, Maine. We remem- 
bered, too, our two deceased members — 



Rosslyn Gorney Ginsburg passed away in 
1957, and Natalie Converse Kincaid was 
killed in an automobile accident last win- 
ter. 

"Gege" Somers showed the movies she 
has taken at each of our reunions since 
1940. This year's film will be added to be 
shown at our 35th. The meeting adjourned 
and we all hurried to the President's Re- 
ception. The White House was open for 
inspection and how I wish you might all 
see this new residence. It was a pleasure to 
meet Lasell's newly appointed president, 
Dr. Blake Tewksbury, and his wife and we 
wish them much success at the college. 

Our happy day ended with dinner at the 
Maridor Restaurant in Framingham. After 
many "see you at the 35th" and "let's get 
together more often," we parted and went 
our several ways. Now how about it — 
can't you plan a New England vacation for 
June 1965 ? Let's plan a weekend of activi- 
ties. 

Many thanks to you — Phyl and Libby 
— for your generous support and help in 
planning this big day for us. 
Sincerely, 
Corinne Cowdrey Murray

Cover Girl of "This Week," syndicated

August 14, I960 was none other than a 
"Dilly of a Diver" — Joel Dina Lenzi. 
Joel, youngest of three daughters of the 
late Ethelyn Whitney Lenzi, was graduated 
from the Coral Gables (Fla.) High School 
in June and was among the I960 Olympic 
diving hopefuls. The eldest of the Lenzi 
gals, Ethelyn, Jr. — writes: "Joel left Flor- 
ida in July for the National AAU Senior 
Women's Meet in Indianapolis, where she 
placed third in the diving competition. She 
trained a month in Detroit for the Olympic 
tryouts and was so terribly disappointed 
when she missed the Olympic Team by only 
one point. Only the two top divers are 
qualified — and Joel was in the #3 spot. 
In September she will enter Southern Illi- 
nois University and continue swimming 
under the direction of her present coach 
and possibly try for the Olympics again in 
1964. Gail, a senior at Florida State Uni-

Miss Constance Blackstock '09 with 1935's Delegates 



Not one of us could really believe it — 
but our 25th arrived! In spite of the usual 
June activities — graduations and wed- 
dings — twenty-four of the '35ers appeared 
on campus. We gathered at Plummer for 
coffee and gab in the morning, joined the 
other returning alumnae for luncheon un- 
der the canvas, and several of us adjourned 
to Barbara Ordway Brewer's home for late 
afternoon reminiscing and gossiping. A 
small group ended the happy day with 
dinner at the Pillar House and we were 
happy to have Mr. and Mrs. Earl Ordway 
with us — they have always been a special 
part of our class. 

We are proud to announce that twenty- 
five members of the Class of 1935 contrib- 
uted $285 to the college as a special gift

too. I continue to help Bunt at the office

job — the building sits on pilings over the

"Deborah York: 'After a year and a half

"Natalie Hutchinson Germaine: 'We are

"There's a Portland family where the men 
outnumber the women four-to-one; where 
Mom blithely lists 'home repairs' among 
Dad's hobbies; where three boys are plenty 
busy keeping up with two active parents — 
and their homework, too. This is the Win- 
throp A. Wells family — Oregon's Ail- 
American family, who will represent the 
state in the Ail-American Family Contest to 
be conducted May 24 to June 1 at LeHigh, 
Florida.' Announcement of the selection was 
made during the annual convention of the 
Oregon Federation of Women's Clubs, which 
led the search for the Oregon family. 

"Betsy and Winthrop Wells and their 
sons, Peter, 17; Michael, 15, and Stephen, 
13, live in a seven-room contemporary cedar 
house at 5415 S. W. 19th Drive. Wells is 
a civilian engineer with the U.S. Corps of 
Engineers, and Mrs. Wells, who was in re- 
tailing before her marriage, works part-time 
for the Oregon Journal. Portlanders for 
twelve years, the Wellses are transplanted 
New Englanders. 

"As a family they camp together — all 
five took a cross-country camping trip to New 
England — and explore innumerable hob- 
bies, ranging from ceramics to fishing and 
including heme repairs.' 

"The parents are advisers to the Junior 
High Fellowship at the First Congregational 
Church, and their work with the young 
people includes taking them on outings and 
camping trips as well as guiding regular 
church activities. For Winthrop and Betsy 
Wells, the church work has particularly 
deep meaning because they believe one of 
the greatest problems facing families is 
'teaching moral and spiritual values when so 
much emphasis is placed on material things.' 

"In Boy Scouts, Wells is an assistant 
scoutmaster; Pete, a Wilson High School 
student, is a junior assistant scoutmaster; 
Mike, also at Wilson High, is a senior patrol 
leader, and Steve is an assistant patrol leader. 
Steve will go to the Boy Scout Jamboree at 
Colorado Springs this summer. All of the 
boys like to swim and Mike is a golfer as 
well. 

"The five Wellses will fly to Florida on 
an all-expense-paid trip to compete with 49 
other families for the title of All-American 
Family. The competition is a General Fed- 
eration of Women's Clubs' search with the 
co-operation of three sponsors — Stude- 
baker-Lark, Westinghouse and Owens-Cor- 
ning Fiberglas. Some of the attributes the 
judges looked for were love, affection, sharing 
of activities and a strong emphasis on family 
freedom so that each member can develop 
his potentials."

tending Reunion in '59, but our daughter, 
Leslie, arrived on May 30th — and she

20th Reunion 



The 20th Reunion of the Class of 1940 
brought some thirty very talkative class- 
mates to the campus on June 11, I960; con- 
sidering our widely scattered delegation, 
this was a fine representation. 

It seemed so wonderful to return to the 
College — inspect new buildings — attend 
the Crowning of the Queen and President's 
Reception — and the other activities that 
brought back many fond memories. 

Amazing as it may seem — after twenty 
years — we decided that none of us had 
changed very much. One girl's daughter had 
a wonderful time "finding" us in the Lamp. 
Perhaps she saw a change — we didn't. 

We share news from the questionnaires 
and look for many other gals at our 25 th. 

Ruth MacDowell Stonemetz: Working 
part time (secretary). Attempting to make 
uninteresting old house look interesting. 
The usual dabbling in sewing, gardening, 
textile painting, knitting, and trying to keep 
up with a teen-age son. 

Isabel Hughes Smith: Besides the usual 
home activities, I am organist for our church, 
studying piano again, and take part in Com- 
munity Concerts. Seems there are still not 
enough hours in the day to do all the other 
things I would like to do. Will be in 
Massachusetts this summer, but not in time 
for Reunion. My best to all. 

Julia Rankin Sprague: L.W.V. and D.A.R. 
Helping some with Polly's Girl Scout Troop 
and taking an active part in church affairs. 

Jane Hutchison Wulfing: Hospital nurses' 
aid, secretary of the Hospital Guild, Friend- 
ly House Board, Church work, bowl on 



Country Club team. Still working hard on 
this big house we remodelled. Love being 
in a smaller town after St. Louis and living 
right on the Mississippi is lots of fun. Wish 
the Reunion were a bit later for we spend 
July and August in Maine. 

Doris Somerville Krom: Trying to keep 
up with my three "live wires" and their 
activities. 

Luceal Welsh Berni: Spend most of my 
time running after Wells, but I do find a 
little time to sell real estate and do interior 
decorating. 

Elizabeth Shugar Cullen: Sorry not to be 
able to make the 20th but right now the 
family takes all my time. The twins, born 
in March '59, are very good, and we all are 
having lots of fun with them . . . and we 
finally had a girl. Regards to all. 

Barbara Mayhew Donald: Cub Scouts, 
League of Women Voters, Sunday School

In April Barbara Kelly Morell wrote from 
Geneva, Switzerland (162 Ronte de La Ca- 
pite, Vesenaz) : "Charles, our three boys (14, 
12 and 8) and I have moved to Geneva for 
a few years. My husband is with the Flight 
Propulsion Division of the General Electric 
Company. When we arrived last October we 
lived in a pension for two months and 
moved to an apartment just before the 
Christmas holidays. The apartment is in a 
200-year-old house, recently remodeled and 
we all just LOVE it. Geneva is one of the 
prettiest cities in the world — so very clean 
and neat. We are all learning to speak 
French — our oldest son goes to the Inter- 
national School, and the two younger boys 
have been attending a school in the moun- 
tains for three months. Have enjoyed much 
skiing all during the winter and the boys are 
becoming very expert. During the Easter 
vacation we spent a week on the Riviera — 
drove along the coast of France, into Italy — 
all beautiful beyond words. I am enjoying 
the American Women's Club here in Geneva, 
and we are all so delighted with this oppor- 
tunity. Regards to all." 

Also ski enthusiasts are Trudy Ruch Kauff-

Mr. Emile Ruch, passed away in November

The day couldn't have been more beauti- 
ful, the welcome couldn't have been warmer 
— and we had a wonderful time! I wish 
everyone could have been there! We didn't 
take survey but just from my personal ob- 
servation (if anyone should ask me!) . . . 
I'd say that Prie Robbins Stahl and Hen- 
rietta Sharpe Smith have changed the least. 
Of course, I don't think Barbara Preuss Rey- 
nolds will ever change! Most of us seemed 
to be thinner than we were during our 
Lasell days — a few of us fatter — and all 
of us seemed very happy! 

Now for the news . . . from you who were 
there and from you who weren't but took 
time to write. In answer to "what you do in 
your spare time," this is what you tell me. 
(I'm skipping all the "what spare time" ex- 
clamations — but we all know what you 
mean! ) 

Dorothy Holman Potter: "Took the I960 
Census in Norwood (Mass.). It was really 
a different routine from being an every-day 
housewife. I could write a very funny book 
about some of the things that happened to 
me on my 500-house route . . . but being a 
government employee, I couldn't do that!" 
Dorothy is also Assistant Den Mother for 
Cub Scouts, does P.T.A. work and was Cap- 
tain for the United Drive in Norwood. 

Jeanne Gilbert Bender: "I've developed a 
great interest in cooking. A group of us 
meet in one another's homes once a month 
and serve unusual dishes. It's a lot of fun! 
My other love is volunteer Red Cross work. 
I've been a 'gray lady' for five years. We do 
our very rewarding work at Lyons Veterans 
Administration Hospital." 

Barbara Preuss Reynolds: "Have a Girl 
Scout troop with my sister, Ann Preuss 
Olson ('43); also do church work, sew, bowl 




Constance Pettigrew Edie '45 
and Family 

— and am just a generally busy housewife." 

Jane Burnham Eliason: "Besides the usual 
chauffeuring for Brownies, music lessons, 
dancing class, etc., etc., I do enjoy Jr. League 
volunteer work and the many local activities. 
Also enjoy sitting down and reading a good 
book — wish that I ever got a chance!" 
Jane tells us, too, that she and Tom are knee- 
deep in new house plans at the moment. 

Barbara Keene Coan: "My spare time is 
well taken care of with three pre-schoolers. 
Do belong to a bridge club and serve on the 
Reader's Committee of the Holy Cross Epis- 
copal Church Mission." 

Priscilla Robbins Stahl: "After the chil- 
dren (four girls) and the animals (two 
collies, bird, etc.) are taken care of, I like 
to paint, preferably in oils!" 

Dorothy Piper Bottalico: "I have thirty 
piano pupils and a Sunday School class, and 
usually manage to get involved in whatever 
play our local theater group is producing at 
the moment. Also belong to a modern dance 
group, a bridge club and a bowling group." 

Ruth Davis Burk: "Active in League of 
Women Voters and on two Recreation Com- 
mittees. Spend our summers and some week- 
ends on Scraggy Neck at the Cape." 

Gretchen Fuller Beers: "Executive Direc- 
tor of the Home Front!" Jeff has five chil- 
dren but also manages to do P.T.A. and Girl 
Scout work, play bridge, bowl, swim, golf, 
garden — and referee a Great Dane, tomcat, 
and parakeet! 

Betty Bagnall Woidyla: "Attended the 
University of Arizona — a second-semester 
junior in the College of Education (Kinder- 
garten-Primary Degree) and expect to grad-

So this is what some of us are doing

. . . much concerned with our children's ac- 
tivities . . . active in community affairs . . . 
catching moments here and there for enter- 
taining and being entertained, for cultural 
pursuits, for sports. 

What will we be like at our Twentieth 
Reunion? Pretty much the same, most likely 
— only more so! But our Twenty-fifth 
should find us quite a bit different — a 
grandmother here and there . . . well, we'll 
look and see when the time comes.

tute representative for our class to the An-

It was truly a bang-up weekend — with fine

drummed up a fourth — and had a great old 
bridge game. Surely seemed like old times. 
On Saturday "Corky" Schlegel Cathcart, 
"Moo" Ross Benshimol, Joan Hanson Blake, 
Camie and I gabbed more as we lunched to- 
gether in Woodland. It was thrilling to see 
the new buildings — especially Ordway Hall 
and the President's Home — and believe me, 
it was an experience I shall cherish for a 
long time. Thanks again to you." 

Lynn and Joan Hanson Blake have of- 
fered their services for plans and details with 
regard to the 15th Reunion — this coming 
June. They are already at work and WATCH

Edith Ann Avery Todd has recently moved

Hazel Koehnline Archambault writes to 
the Recorder's Office from 410 Maple Drive, 
Terrell, Texas: "Thank you so much for 
promptly sending a transcript of my Lasell 
work — I have plans for finishing my de- 
gree in order to teach school. Two children 
plus 'fourteen-years-later' have had a settling 
effect on this carefree schoolgirl. I was born 
in Texas and have looked forward to return- 
ing — finally made it three years ago and 
we love it. Terrell is a lovely little town, 30 
miles east of Dallas, and my Yankee husband 
and children are rapidly becoming real 
Texans."

Of her garden wedding on July 24th, Mim 
Day Butcher writes: "The day was perfect 
and the wedding beautiful. All the flowers 
— lavender and white — were flown from 
Hawaii. Miss Delia Davis (Faculty '43-'59) 
poured the punch, and Lynn Kneller Mix 
and Mary Small Lee and their husbands were 
present. Clyde is a native New Englander, a 
B.U. graduate, and is associated with Sperry 
Microwave in Oldsmar, Florida. Are there 
any Lasell gals in the vicinity of Clearwater 
or Tampa?" 

Elaine Burrell King and family "moved to 
our beautiful new home at 15 Drum Lane, 
Sudbury (Mass.) in March. So happy to be 
settled. Pam and Kim share our enthusiasm. 
Do come to visit!" 

The Harold Harrisons (Gloria Wurth) 
are enjoying their new Georgian Colonial 
home — 315 Runyon Avenue, Deal, N. J. 
And in November 1959 Rosada Marston 
Cole was unpacking at the Cole's new home 
at 48 Winnie Lane, Poughkeepsie, N. Y. — 
"only an hour's drive from Albany when the 
homesick bug hits." 

From Starr Maxson Winquist: "The job 
of being a new mother is time-consuming 
but so wonderful. Do miss teaching but find 
that watching the growth and development 
of one's own is rewarding and satisfying." 

Lennie Chamberlain Hawley "became in- 
volved with Girl Scouts and Sunday School 
since moving to Burlington (Mass.). Have 
been here two years — prior to this we were 
in Illinois for nine months and two years in 
Washington, D. C. Bill is scheduled to be 
here at least four years — on the strength ot 
that assignment, we bought an old farmhouse, 
into which we have poured money and labor. 
But we do love it and it is a wonderful spot 
for the children. Took the girls for a drive 
to Auburndale — the new buildings are 
most impressive and the gals were thrilled." 
JoAnn Hanson Long wrote to Berry: "The 
past winter was filled with happenings. In

Dean and Wingate Sung 
(Beulah Kwok '48) 

November my dear grandmother died — one 
month after her 90th birthday. December 
brought Rebecca Laurel — blue-eyed, prac- 
tically bald and precious! March found me 
in the hospital with pneumonia, and while I 
was there Ray accepted a new job with the 
Edwards Company, Inc. in Norwalk, Conn." 

Louise Miller Johnston x-'48 sends this 
word: "We are all fine. Bought a 30-acre 
farm in January, remodelled it completely 
and then sold it in June. Celebrated the sale 
by spending a short vacation at the Lake 
Placid Club, where I received a prize in the 
Ladies' Golf Tournament." 

Paula Drake, "desperate in the battle to 
answer correspondence," forwarded a mimeo- 
graphed letter, dated March I960 — 16 
Walnut Street, Portland, Maine: "Upon my 
return from Denmark in July, I found my- 
self at loose ends. It is really difficult to re- 
adjust to old habits and familiar surround- 
ings once again. I became very fond of the 
many people I met in Denmark and the year 
abroad was completely successful. To come 
away fully refreshed about one's own habits 
and values and to feel a satisfaction at having 
learned another language fluently enough to 
fit in with another cukure is worth every 
hour of struggle and hard work. 

"My heart lies in New England when I 
am in this country — so here I am again in 
the State of Maine. My present position is 



Director of Girls' Physical Education at the 
Cape Elizabeth High School. The physical 
plant is very new and I am most fortunate to 
have a private office — complete with bath 
and shower! I have set up the complete pro- 
gram — starting with the addition of field 
hockey, as well as having instigated an active 
interscholastic and intramural program. Now 
trying Danish gymnastics and the girls enjoy 
this very different and unique (to them) 
kind of activity. 

"I have an apartment in Portland and have 
been having much fun furnishing it. My real 
desire is to furnish it in completely modern 
Danish furniture. Enjoy the new contacts at 
the Portland Fencing Club and take advan- 
tage of good weekends for skiing. Have been 
officiating at local basketball games, and 
write a sports column for the Sunday edition 
of the Portland Press Herald. In addition I 
am a member of the Portland Players and the 
Portland Symphony Orchestra. One of my 
deepest interests lies in the field of inter- 
national relations. I am keeping a finger in 
Scandinavian Seminars by doing some public 
relations for them. Have been accepted as a 
leader of a comparative education (physical 
education and recreation) study group co- 
sponsored by the State University of New 
York and The Experiment in International 
Living for this summer."

be on hand for the 1959 reunion festivities. 

items from Kay Poore Hamel: Had a 
newsy note from Cynthia Woodward With- 
erell and from a new address: 218B Chris- 
tian Lane, Fort Benning, Ga. Cynthia's hus- 
band, Jack, is taking the Advanced Officers' 
Course at the Fort and Cyn is active in 
Women's Club affairs. Daughter Nancy en- 
ters first grade in September I960, and 
young Andy is "into everything at home." 

Dorothy Bessette was married to Jack 
Young on November 18, 1959 in Chicago. 
Dot's new address is 226 Marine Court, 
Lauderdaie-by-the-Sea, Florida and she wel- 
comes all vacationing Lasell friends. 

Louise Keene Mills, husband Harold, and 
the boys — Jeffrey, 5, Scott, 3 — have the 
camping "bug" and planned summer week- 
ends and vacation with tent, sleeping bags, 
cooking gear, et al., visiting New England 
forests and campgrounds. How about a pic- 
ture for proof? 

Kay also had a recent letter from Pete 
Fiske Brubaker. Her husband Carl, an asso- 
ciate professor of chemistry, has been a 
member of the Michigan State faculty for 
eight years. With sons Pete and Carl, the 
Brubakers spent six months, in 1958, in San- 
tiago, Chile, where the boys learned to speak 
Spanish fluently.

for '49. When the deadline date arrived 
Walter and I were enjoying two glorious 
weeks in the Virgin Islands, "Didge" was 
busy with a brand-new daughter, Sarah, and 
Kay was without word from any of you. 

By the time this issue appears the Demo- 
cratic National Convention will be history — 
but at the moment, I sincerely hope all eyes 
are glued to TV and could be there will be a 
view of Richard K. Donahue 'and wife, 
Nancy (Straw Lawson). Dick, a strategist 
and very active campaigner for Jack Ken- 
nedy, travelled to Wisconsin and West Vir- 
ginia with the Massachusetts Senator, and

Mrs. Peter W. Stanley 

( Jean Davies ) , Secretary 

7 Sherwood Road, Natick, Mass. 

Mrs. Lloyd Stockdale 

(Sabra Turner), Secretary

Mrs. Richard K. Dey 

( Jacquelyn Temper ley) , Secretary 

400 Worcester Street, "Wellesley, Mass. 

Reunion morning, Saturday, June 11, 
dawned bright, balmy, and beautiful. From 
morning coffee and registration at Plum- 
mer to our visit at the White House for 
the President's Informal Reception — the 
hearts of all '50'ers were young and gay 
and more than a little nostalgic. It was a 
day made for strolling on our Alma 
Mater's lovely campus, reawakening most 
pleasant memories and reliving gone-by ex- 
periences. 

The class business meeting immediately 
following luncheon under The Tent in- 
cluded some facts that those of you who 
weren't present might enjoy knowing. 

Class secretaries voted for the next five 
years are: Jean Davies Stanley, Sabra Turner 
Stockdale, and Jackie Temperley Dey. The 
new class co-agent with Sally is Mary Ann 
Sylvester Tremblay. 

Of the 277 questionnaires mailed to '50'ers 
and x-'50'ers, we received 141 returns — bet- 
ter than 50%, which pleased us. There were 
275 babies — 140 boys and 135 future 
Lasell Lu's and many cherubs due in the 
spring, summer and fall. 

We awarded a few prizes: — 

To the gal with the most children (5) 
Dot Goehring Rourke — a Lasell stuffed 
dog with freshman beanie. 

To the gal who came the greatest dis- 
tance — Phyllis Farr Blanton from Bran- 
don, Florida (1,333 miles) — stationery. 

To the most recently married (December 



26, 1959) — Iris Schofield McDonough — 
in California at reunion time — Lasell salt 
and pepper shakers were sent to her home in 
Burlington, Massachusetts. 

To the gal with the most outside activities 
— Barbara Schnelle Orton — a Lasell pill 
box. 

There were a few requests made of all of 
you which I shall reiterate here — because 
they bear repetition: 

When you're sending pictures of children 
to the LEAVES, please include yourself and 
spouse, or at least yourself in the picture. 

When you're moving, please, please, please 
sent a postcard to the Alumnae Office with 
change of address. 

Sally and I would like to take a line or 
two to publicly thank our willing helpers for 
their much-needed help with mailings, etc., 
for reunion: Mary Ann Sylvester Tremblay, 
Carmen Welch, Naomi Cox, Jan Foley, 
Helen Wetherbee, and Janice Halligan 
Maria. We are indebted. 

Reunion dinner at The Meadows in the 
evening with stags or spouses was attended 
by 64 persons. It was a great success — the 
food, delicious; the entertainment, enjoyable; 
and it was good fun to just sit and chat and 
catch up on news. The gals at the dinner 
were given a souvenir pearl bracelet with 
Lasell emblem, and the men received a small 
Lasell mug. 

Marilyn Bartlett Erratt journeyed from 
Michigan to her mother's in Haverhill, 
where her son remained while Marilyn came 
on to reunion. 

Margot Bergstrom Semonian took time 
out from her three daughters and busy Tufts 
Alumnae Association work to meet with 
other Draperites at Lasell and reunion din- 
ner. 

Marilyn Caterson Zimmerman, now liv- 
ing in Valhalla, New York, enjoyed visiting 
campus again. 

Barbara Chipman Will tells us she man- 
ages to keep busy with two children, and 
community activities, including the local 
chapter of Sigma Phi Gamma International 
Sorority. 

Jan Foley's parents opened their Glouces- 
ter beach house for reunion weekend to the 
Clark gals and others. Janet Debbs Waldele, 
Nancy Frank Daly, Joan Antun Rednor, 
Clare Gammons McMullan arrived on Fri- 
day night. During and after a lobster dinner, 
they chattered about Frankie's new home, 
Joan's two moves in four months, and 
Gubby's moving to Texas, among other 
things. They missed Eileen Duffy and 
Margie Gilbert, both in an order of teaching 
nuns. Anne Carpenter Towle and husband 
joined Jan and Gubby at The Meadows Sat-

Patricia Binks DeLisle writes — "In May 
'59 my husband and I moved to a new six- 
room Dutch colonial home. At the time 
I was employed by the State in the Depart- 
ment of Health and Welfare as a child 
welfare worker. Our daughter, Stacey Ann, 
arrived on July 30, 1959. 

Virginia Faesy's letter came to us from 
Switzerland. After leaving Lasell, Virginia 
studied at Columbia University in New

saw a little of England, France and Italy 
and on to Switzerland, where she has been 
ever since. She worked eight months in a 
children's creche in Zurich. 

Leonora Coronella Kreuger writes that 
she and her husband have moved so many

ing up with them. Leo and her husband

now are located in San Diego, California. 
In the late fall of I960 Leo and daughter,

The Warrens have three children: Kathleen 
(born December 20, 1956), Kevin (born 
December 23, 1957) and Michael (born 
August 13, 1959). Joan Godfrey Emmert 
and Maggie Angus Christman and their 
families (the three gals were "roomies") 
came to the Warrens for a week-end. Con- 
fusion reigned but much fun was had by all. 

Claire LeLiberte Adler writes she and her

New York City in November seeing all the 
sights and shows. They and their two 
daughters, Lynn and Nancy, are living in 
Simsbury, Connecticut. 

Eva Bunzel is still with N.B.C. in San 
Franciso. She wrote to us on January 6,

of the Olympics at Squaw Valley in Febru- 
ary, and a trip to Europe in May. 

Mary Lou Burke Alexander writes that

they spend a good deal of time at the beach 
since their home is only five minutes away 
by car. The Wilsons have a twenty-one 
month old daughter, Jana. 

Judy Brewer Campbell's husband is the 
Chief Industrial Engineer at Alan Wood 
Steel Company in Conshohocken and the 
Campbell's home is in Flourtown, five 
miles away. On December 30, 1959, Chris- 
topher Lavino Campbell, was born. 

Barbara Morris wrote to us before her 
wedding on January 23, I960 to Mr. Lee 
Louria. Barbara had been living in New 
York for over two years and was in charge 
of the editorial department at Dennison, 
101 Park Avenue. Barbara's husband, an 
Amherst and Syracuse Law School graduate, 
is in the employee relations department at

Engineering from Northeastern University 
in January. 

Barbara Bytner Holleran says being mar- 
ried to a funeral director plus taking care 
of two small children (Maureen and Tim- 
my) makes for a busy life. Barbara says 
she is thinking of going back to school — 
but quite a bit different from Lasell Junior 
College. This would be to secure a license 
for the funeral business and the school 
would be McAllister's School of Embalm- 
ing in New York City. 

Carolyn Martin Flahive writes that her 
two children, a son (Chester III) and a 
daughter (Dorothy Ann) forced them out

Homer Barlow, a native of Peoria, Illinois, 
and at present an executive with the B. F.

Marie, born March 26, 1959, is a treasure.

way will find time to visit."

new address — 148 Broad Street, Middle-

when he was offered a position in Windsor

The children adore the country and we have 
enjoyed entertaining our friends this sum- 
mer." Nancy added this interesting post- 
script: "By the way, N.Y.U. night students' 
wives receive a 'degree' too — for faithful 
service in preserving peace and quiet while 
hubbies study." 

From Willie Gomperts Hayduk x-'54: 
"Have been so busy settling in our new

Toni Hayden Durkee has "moved again

suburban Dayton — just five minutes' walk

FIFTH REUNION 

The day of our fifth reunion was a beauti- 
ful one for the seventy-eight girls plus a 
number of husbands who met at 10:30 a.m. 
for coffee at Plummer. It was wonderful to 
see so many classmates and to hear what each 
had been doing since Lasell days. 

After the Alumnae meeting and Luncheon 
on The Recreation Field, we visited the 
familiar houses as well as the new buildings 
on campus, and enjoyed watching the crown- 
ing of the June Queen and attending the re- 
ception on the lawn of the President's Home 

— a spot new to us. 

In the evening, many of us met for dinner 
at Robin Hood's Ten Acres in Wayland and 
took advantage of every minute to visit and 
talk with Lasell friends — not quite enough 

— but it will have to do for the next five 
years.

Prof. Harry V. Anderson of Boston 
University and Robert W. Ficken of the 
Old Colony Trust Company were ap- 
pointed to the Board of Trustees at the 
annual meeting on October 26, I960. 
Mr. Anderson and Mr. Ficken, husband 
of Shiela Hand Ficken x-'4l, are both 
Waban residents. 



Also appointed to the Board was 
Julia Crafts Sheridan, a member of the 
Class of 1910. Mrs. Sheridan, owner 
of Squaw Mountain Inn in Greenville 
Junction, Maine, is a past president of 
the Eastern Maine Club and a Life

"Classes at the Castle" is the ex- 
hausted cry from present-day students 
as they make their way up the steep hill, 
overlooking Hawthorne and Aspen Ave- 
nues. The stately Victorian mansion, 
built in 1870 by Edwin B. Haskell, for- 
mer Boston newspaper editor and pub- 
lisher, was willed to the college by the 
late Mrs. Lucia E. Farrington of Au- 
burndale. Recently renovated, the build- 
ing affords space for two dance studios, 
seven lecture rooms and a student 
lounge. 



Transference of classes to Farrington 
Hall made possible a "New Look" for 
Bragdon's first floor corridors. During 
the Christmas vacation alterations were 
made to provide more space for admin- 
istrative offices, and the former Main 
Office has been transformed to a spa- 
cious reception room. 

Another equally appreciated renova- 
tion, designed to alleviate congestion at 
the Bookstore, was the completion of a 
Snack Bar, installed on the lower level 
of The Barn. 



LASELL LEAVES 



FROM PRESIDENT TEWKSBURY 

DEVELOPING AWARENESS 



Where are the girls now, who bounced 
into Lasell a few years ago fresh from 
a whirling, carefree high school career? 
It is difficult to identify them among the 
members of the newest classes of respon- 
sible citizens. Much, indeed, occurs dur- 
ing college to affect the life of a young 
person, but the full realization of this 
change is best apparent to the alumna 
as she looks back over a period of years. 

What high school graduate has not 
approached college with a full share of 
self-satisfaction and confidence in the 
great store of facts she has amassed 
from her preparatory school years? Ac- 
companying this feeling is perhaps a 
great deal of curiosity which becomes 
almost a challenge to the college to 
produce enough new knowledge to keep 
her meaningfully occupied. 

Learning, on the college level, takes 
on an entirely new complexion — more 
interesting and exciting than ever be- 
fore. For the most part students take 
a high school education for granted. 
Teachers more often than not resort to 
feeding the material to students, spoon- 
ful by spoonful. But in college students 
can begin questioning and discriminat- 
ing, rather than merely accepting infor- 
mation as presented. In college one is 
given the opportunity (in fact, the en- 
couragement) to inquire for oneself, to 
cultivate a questioning mind and to 
stimulate a desire to search out the 
answers. 

In college, to a greater extent than 
ever before, a student discovers the 
"why" of things, as well as the "what." 
In certain fields where many areas are as 
yet unexplored, such as psychology and 
chemistry, it is even possible to push 
beyond the available field of knowledge 
and to experiment with the unknown. 
In every field of study the student will 
eventually be required to examine a bit 
of the subject matter in detail for her- 



self and record her findings in the form 
of a research paper or examination. As 
a result of such exercises and disciplines, 
she learns to question blind acceptance 
of statements at face value, and to con- 
sider all available evidence with an 
open mind before coming to a decision. 

Although the cultivation of the mind 
is the primary concern of the college, 
one cannot overlook the changes in the 
individual's behavior which the society 
of a campus effects. Year after year the 
Freshmen and Senior classes have been 
stereotyped. Often there is more truth 
in these characterizations than one sees 
at first. Students generally spend the 
first year trying to "fit in," to become 
a real part of the college society; the 
second year, in trying to escape from the 
social conformity and to assert individ- 
uality. Though these phases may be 
looked upon with restrained amusement, 
they are no less crucial to each student 
as they are experienced. As a whole, 
the college society, precisely because it 
is based on group participation, helps to 
bring about important changes within 
the individual — increased poise and 
self-assurance, greater tolerance and un- 
derstanding, and generally more mean- 
ingful human relationships. 

Who can generalize when considering 
the facets of individual personal de- 
velopment which result from a college 
education ? Each student reacts different- 
ly and develops uniquely during this 
highly concentrated period. It is possible 
to examine apparent over-all effects as 
we have done, but perhaps the only 
generalization we can make with honesty 
is that most students will emerge from 
college with a greater awareness of 
themselves as persons than they had 
before entering. It is certainly our hope 
at Lasell that graduates will leave with 
greater desire for continuing self-educa- 
tion and resources which will help them 
to derive meaning from their lives.

MODERN DANCE INSTRUCTOR 

SUMMERS IN AFRICA 



By Mrs. Jeanne Cousins 

as related to Joan Brodalski '61, 

Assistant Editor, The Lasell News 

Umtali, Entebbe, Bulawayo, places 
on the map, unknown to me, but great 
modern cities on a great continent; a 
land of contrasts, contrasts of many 
things, of sky and water, mountains and 
plains, merciless sun and snow — these 
are but a few of the many things I ex- 
perienced during a summer in Africa. 
Black against white, man against man, 
lion against zebra, beast against beast; all 
are fighting for their place in the world. 
A continent that will hold all of Europe, 
all of Russia, all of China, and all of 
Texas; this was the playground for my 
short summer holiday. 

My first sight of Africa was Egypt. 
It was easy to recognize Egypt because 
of the smell. Having visited Egypt be- 
fore, I hastened my passage through 
the Suez. Dirty water, dunes, sand, filth; 
heat ! heat ! heat ! An air temperature of 
98° and a sea temperature of 98° added 
up to untouchable bulkheads and blister- 
ing decks. 

In a setting reminiscent of "Beau 
Geste," the ingenious Americans had a 
billboard in the midst of the desert, 
proclaiming in big, bold print "Fresh 
from the U.S.A., Lucky Strike Ciga- 
rettes." It was my thought that it should 
have read "Camels." 

The ship passed through the Bitter 
Lakes, the Red Sea, and the Gulf of 
Aden, finally putting in at the port 
of Aden at 4:30, one dark, humid morn- 
ing. Stumbling over bodies asleep in the 
streets that first morning in Aden 
was enough to chill the blood of one 
lonely school teacher. 

Aden, a shopper's paradise for radios, 
cameras, binoculars, and fishing rods, is 
within a volcanic crater. There is no 
grass, nothing. I visited the Tarwella, 
where the Indians put their dead up on 



a grillwork made of cement. The 
buzzards pick all the flesh off the bones, 
and then the bones fall through the 
grate. 

After a few days, I was off by cargo 
plane with a load of chad (a stalk- 
like dope used by the natives as a 
toothbrush) into Djibouti, with its 
ground temperature of 126°. Off again 
in a whirling sandstorm our plane 
dropped down in the middle of a 
lush countryside, 8,000 feet high and 
with a temperature of 40°. This was 
Addis Ababa, Ethopia, land of the 
Queen of Sheba, and the home of an 
Amharic speaking, aristocratic people. 
I went shopping here and bought a fly 
wisk, which is a white horse's tail, and 
now the freedom symbol of the Congo. 

Once into the air again, I was initiated 
into the "Ethereal Order of Shellbacks" 
as I passed over Mt. Kenya, the only 
place on the equator that has snow 
throughout the year. As we came down 
in Nairobi, Africans shooed the os- 
triches off the runway, and it became 
most apparent that I was in the "Land 
of Red Dust." 

It was from here in Nairobi that 
I went on the first leg of my safari. 
I stalked game along the Namanga 
River, with Kiprop as my guide. "Kip," 
as I called him. was a member of the 
Kipsi tribe. He had the identifying 
mark of his tribe; the lobes of his 
ears were slit and hung to his shoulders. 
When it was windy, he would twist 
the lobe and flip it over the top of 
his ear. 

It was a frightening experience to be 
charged by a bull elephant. I was 
sitting quietly eating lunch when I 
caught his first movement out of the 
corner of my eye. I turned and saw 
him charge. "Kip" slammed the Rover 
(a convertible-type jeep similar to 
those used in WW II) into reverse, 
and the grinding of the gears, and the 



LASELL LEAVES 



dirt flying from the skid deflected the 
animal to one side and back towards 
the herd. I learned then that elephants 
are the most vicious animals. They scare 
easily and attack easily. 

I was licensed to shoot but did not. 
The people of Africa say that the 
Americans come over there only to 
shoot their game. I thought it better 
to do all my shooting with a camera. 

We went on, through Mombasa and 
Dar es Salaam, the capital of Tanganyi- 
ka, into the romantic port of Zanzibar, 
a smuggler's paradise. Here, merchants 
proudly advertised the sales of precious 
jewels that were actually nothing but 
pieces of glass. The streets of Zanzibar 
are very narrow; you have to lean against 
the walls when a car is going by. Ruled 
by a sultan, Zanzibar is known for its 
brass-studded doors. The smell of 
cloves is everywhere. 

As the guest of the Consulate Gen- 
eral, who incidentally is from New 
Haven, Connecticut, I visited Salisbury, 
Livingstone, and Victoria Falls. 

From Victoria Falls, I moved on to 
Johannesburg, a honeycomb of gold 
mines. This city is ringed by gold. 
Minedups (mines of gold dug out of 
the ground), coppjes, hills of gold 
everywhere! It was here that I got 
mixed up with an African Dance Group. 
I sat in the back during a performance 
so that I could observe the- movements 
carefully and take notes. The producer 
of the show approached me, wanting to 
know what I was taking notes on. I 
became friendly with the dancers and 
they showed me how to do several of 
their original steps. 

After visiting Durban, East London, 
and Port Elizabeth, I arrived at Cape- 
town, one of the loveliest cities I have 
visited in the world. The temperature 
was about 38° in the morning and 
warmed up to about 50° during the 
day. While in Capetown, I went up 
to Sea Point, where the Atlantic Ocean 
and the Indian Ocean meet. Table 
Mountain, with its tablecloth of clouds, 




Mrs. Jeanne Cousins 

was another sight not easily forgotten. 

The charming little island of St. 
Helena, famous as Napoleon's home 
in exile, was my next port of call. It 
is here that you climb Jacob's Ladder, 
966 steps straight up a cliff. The little 
St. Helenans, coming down from the 
mountain, lie across the railing at the 
top of the Ladder and hang on with 
their elbows on one side and with 
their ankles on the other and slide 
straight down. 

It was so good to see the American 
flag flying on the American Airport at 
Ascension, and to know that the missile 
tenders were on the alert. It was de- 
lightful to visit Las Palmas in the 
Grand Canary Islands, go on a rabbit 
hunt, and be able to buy a fur coat for 
$8. Las Palmas is the only real volcano 
that has a farm in the crater. 

Coming home it was hard to believe 
that I had seen so little, and yet so 
much, of a continent wealthy beyond 
our dreams, with oil, diamonds, minerals 
of every sort. 

Plains, mirages, and mountains, 
game hiding in the bush, the black man 
in his crall, and the white man in the 
city — this is what makes up Africa; 
this is what makes me think and say, 
"BONGO! BONGO! BONGO! I 
DIDN'T WANT TO LEAVE THE 
CONGO."

CLASS NEWS .... 

1884-87 

Mrs. Elizabeth P. Stewart of Cincinnati, 
Ohio recently mailed this thoughtful note 
to the college: "My husband's aunt recalls 
many of her schoolmates and happenings 
of the years (1884-87) she spent at Lasell 
when she was Gertrude Stewart, now Mrs. 
Edward E. Titus of 561 Considine Avenue, 
Cincinnati. She became a champion tennis 
player and golfer, and continues actively 
interested in watching the many sports 
programs on TV. She is 91 and without 
doubt, one of your oldest alumnae. Mrs. 
Titus has a delightful sense of humor and 
retains a keen interest in world affairs and 
her family. Her daughter and a son live 
in Columbus, and another son, married, 
lives in Atlanta, Ga." 



1894 

Ruth Seiberling Pflueger '92-'94 writes: 
"When I entered Lasell in September 1892, 
I did not join any class but enrolled as a 
'Special' student. Now wish I had joined 
the junior class for then I would be listed 
as a graduate of 1894. Celebrated my 86th 
birthday in November. Very best good 
wishes to the college for 1961." 



1895 

Holiday Greetings from Mabel Taylor 
Gannett: "Christmas 1893 and Christmas 
1894 I spent at Lasell. We trimmed a 
huge tree (both times), which touched 
the ceiling of the old parlors at Bragdon. 
Dr. Bragdon worked so very hard the en- 
tire holiday vacation to keep us happy 
and not homesick. There were eighteen 
girls on campus and we had a jolly good 
time. My very best wishes to all at the 
college, and my lovely day — June 11, 
I960 — will always be a most happy 
memory." 

From Braintree, Mabel Sawyer Rogers 
writes: "All best wishes to Lasell and to 
the Alumnae Fund. My household these 
days consist of a lovely granddaughter, 
who is with a Boston firm of architects, 
and a cousin, librarian at the Braintree 
High School."

Bessie Fuller Perry has informed us that 
Georgie Duncan Seavey has suffered a 
fracture of the hip and has been incapacitated 
for several months. And from Searsport, 
Maine, Mrs. Seavey reports: "I have been 
somewhat on the shelf. After eleven weeks, 
seven of them in the hospital, I graduated 
to a wheel-chair, which is still my only 
means of locomotion. Am hoping that I 
may, before too long, again graduate - — 
this time to my feet, with the aid of a 
walker, of course. I feel that I am gain- 
ing very well, and am very grateful that 
it was no worse. Keep busy reading, sew- 
ing, knitting and doing any sit-down job 
that may come my way in our large and 
busy family. 

"Theresa Thompson Osborne '22 has 
kept me in touch with the Eastern Maine 
Club, and they sent a lovely and much- 
appreciated card, signed by all present at 
the October meeting. Shall hope to join 
them at the April get-together."

1907 

Lilian Douglass Heeb writes: "During 
the summer of I960 I enjoyed six weeks 
touring Africa, Lebanon, Jordan and Israel. 
Upon returning to New York, I visited 
Florence Swartwout Thomassen '09, in 
Maplewood, N. J., then on to Pennsyl- 
vania to see a childhood friend, and to 
Vermont, where the Douglass relatives live. 



Florence and I drove to Toronto to see 
Christine Ryrie x-'lO, and en route called 
on Clara Nims in Watertown, N. Y. In 
Buffalo we were entertained by Ruth 
Adams Whiston x'-07, and in Poughkeepsie 
we lunched with Emmeline Guernsey x-'08, 
who now lives alone in the family home. 
Between planes in Chicago I telephoned 
Helen Carter Johnson. I am now estab- 
lished in the beautiful new Royal Oaks 
Manor (1703 Royal Oaks Drive, Duarte, 
Calif,), where I shall make my permanent 
home. Duarte is eleven miles west of 
Covina and I shall continue the various 
civic activities here where I have lived 
since my Lasell days." 

Clara Nims called at Lasell in July and 
"very much enjoyed a pleasant visit with 
Mrs. Mary Blatchford VanEtten. Shall 
spend my eleventh winter in Winter Park,

1909 

From Maria Riker Hume: "Our two 
granddaughters, ages ten and eleven, are 
very much interested in attending Lasell. 
If all goes as planned, one of them will 
be graduating the year of my 60th Re- 
union. We shall certainly have a celebra- 
tion !" 

Ada Wood Peterson x-'09 writes to 
Alumnae Fund Chairman, Louise Tardivel 
Higgins '37: "Your recent letter relating 
to the idea of a definite development pro- 
gram for the college is a fine idea for 
Lasell. It seems only yesterday that I was 
a schoolgirl there — and Oh, so happy. 
Arrived at the Seminary in September 1904 
and I can recall many of the girls. It was a 
great privilege to have studied at Lasell. 
Fondest wishes for many years ahead for 
many more schoolgirls!"

M. Cornelia Stone, Secretary 
23 Brewster Lane, La Grange Park, 111. 

In Memoriam: Olive Bates Dumas on 
August 9, I960. Olive, 1910's Life Secre- 
tary, is survived by her husband, Mr. 
George C. Dumas of Hanover, Mass. 
Other News: In mid-August Josephine 
Woodward Rand notified classmates of 
Olive's' passing and suggested a memorial 
in her honor. The response has been good 
and the participation excellent. 

M. Cornelia Stone has kindly consented 
to serve as Class Secretary, and welcomes 
news of all members. 

Notes from letters to Josephine Wood- 
ward Rand: 

From Eleanor Laurens McCrady: "I am 
afraid I am a poor correspondent. Lived 
in Montreal for twenty-two years and am 
now in Charleston. We travel quite a bit 
and I have so many outside interests — 
though have promised myself to retire this 
year and attend to home and garden only. 
My seventeen-year-old granddaughter and 
namesake attends school in Washington, 
D. C, and is looking forward to a year's 
study in Switzerland. Very best wishes to 
all 1910-ers." 

From Elizabeth Martin x-'lO: "Keep 
busy with church activities — make parish 
calls, and also serve as secretary-treasurer 
of a small civic organization." 

From Julia terKuile Brown: "I am sure 
Olive was very happy to have shared in 
our 50th Reunion. May I make one sug- 
gestion for a memorial — perhaps, a clock 
— for Olive did work 'around the clock' 
for 1910." 

From Irma Levi Levy: "It was wonder- 
ful that the Reunioners had a visit with 
Olive in June. Just recently moved to a 
new little apartment — 215 South Wood 
Street, Sarasota. Very best wishes to all." 

From Anita Wilson McAvoy x-'lO: "Very 
pleased to be included in the memorial for 
Olive. I so often think of the wonderful 
letters you write and the time you give to 
keep up our Lasell spirit. Most of the 
time we just don't take time to tell you 
the terribly good job you are doing." 

From Mabeth Shuttleworth Turner x-'lO: 
"The 50th Reunion must have been a lark 
and how I would have loved to have been 
there. I shall always want to thank Lasell 
for what she has meant to me through the 
years. So often I feel the influence of 
Miss Potter, Miss Nutt, Miss Witherbee, 
Frau Heinrich and other instructors. I 
truly feel that the college offers a won- 
derful background and I trust it will al- 
ways be the same. I keep in touch with my 



niece, Amy Shuttleworth Jensen, 1956's 
Class Agent, and I wish for you all much 
success in the 1960-61 Alumnae Fund 
drive." 

And from Trustee Julia Crafts Sheridan: 
"I am delighted we are doing a memorial 
for Olive. Thoroughly enjoyed the fall 
meeting of the Eastern Maine Lasell Club, 
and had a pleasant ride to Portland after- 
ward with Dr. and Mrs. Tewksbury. The 
following day I flew from Portland to 
Puerto Rico for the 50th anniversary cele- 
bration of the American Hotel Association. 
Took a few extra days and continued on to 
St. Thomas, the Virgin Islands, Haiti, 
Kingston, Jamaica and over the mountains 
to Montego Bay. Now enjoying the warm 
sunshine of Florida. Often think of our 
fine reunion — a very pleasant one to 
remember."

lightful telephone visit with Edessa Warner

Mrs. J. Tracy Colby 

( Clara Parker ) , Secretary 

8 High St., Goffstown, N. H. 

Marjorie Risser Blackwell's letter, dated 
December 19, I960, reads: "This evening 
at seven I start my second trip to the Near 
East. In 1958 I stayed three months in 
Jerusalem — long enough to really feel a 
part of that glorious land where the Christ 
seems so close. 

"This time I shall visit in Bethlehem for 
the three Christmases, then on to Egypt to 
see the many places of Bible interest, in- 
cluding Sinai; and I hope it will be possi- 
ble to revisit Iraq, Babylon and Ur, and 
include Iran, the Persia of our Bible. Shall 
return to Jerusalem for Palm Sunday and 
Easter Pageants. 

"After a tour of the Bible spots in Jordan 
and Lebanon and Syria, I plan to go to

In early November Dorothy Hartshorn 
Underwood forwarded this bit of news: 
"Just returned from five weeks in London, 
where our daughter lives with her banker- 
husband and beautiful year-old daughter. 
Clint and I spent the Thanksgiving week- 
end in New Jersey with our son, his wife 
and two wee boys. Had a delightful visit

years this fall and plan to repeat it before

And from Ethel Vance Foster: "My step-

now in South Pasadena with a family of 
three children, and my son, Erskine Vance

so wonderful to be back in Auburndale

Dear Girls, 

Our Round Robin was about to come my 
way last May when I was off for a three- 
month tour of Europe — and at this 
writing I have been unable to catch up 
with the news of our own girls. 

The summer was a delightful one — we 
had a lovely cruise on the Nieww Amster- 
dam, my husband had business commit- 
ments in Holland for three weeks, and 
daughter Florence joined us there. We 
toured Europe by car — the little Hillman 
now serves as my run-around car — and 
the next five weeks found us in Germany, 
Austria, Switzerland, Italy, France, Luxem- 
bourg, Belgium, and a final two weeks in 
Holland. After a week in London, we 
"did" the countryside for two weeks before 
flying home. 

It is not one bit too early to begin think- 
ing about Reunion and June 1961. I hope 
you are all stuffing the piggy-banks for the 
occasion. Details will come to you in the 
near future.

HIGH HEARTH I960 

After autumn's flare when the year faded — 

gone down in stem and seed, 

gold to gray to almost-white shaded ■ — 

colors of the year were freed. 
Now we know the quiet of our need — 

kindle the hearth in early night, 

in early morning step outside 

to give the birds their feed. 
We think of warmth — 

We think of you 

with starry crystals weave — 
The cool and gentle white comes through 

like Love on Christmas Eve —

Dear '22-ers, 

It's lucky we have Christmas cards for 
news of you gals gets mighty scarce. 
Howze about letting me know of your do- 
ings, your grandchildren, your travels? 

One of the most interesting greetings 
came from Peg Reid Perry — a reprint of 
the lovely hand-colored card she and Nels 
did in 1923. They enjoyed a trip to Portu- 
gal last year — on to Africa — down the 
East Coast through the Indian Ocean and 
home via London. Libby Madeira Camp- 
bell, now rested from an African safari, 
is off to South America this winter. 

Helene Grashorn Dickson — and five 
granddaughters — had a truly Merry 
Christmas. Helene and Lawrence plan to 
visit Phyllis and Medico in June — and 
how we all would like to do just that. 
An occasional trip to San Francisco is the 
extent of Phyllis' travels for the care of 
Medico is a great worry. For them both 
we wish much of good health and comfort 
in the New Year. 

Theresa Thompson Osborne, still in love 
with the Down East move, finds renovat- 
ing the Belfast home a fascinating and time- 
consuming venture. Theresa has two grand- 
daughters also — sounds like a fine Lasell 
future for 1922 ! 

Marjorie Gifford Grimm discovered that 
six grandchildren added a hectic but de- 
lightful touch to the holiday season. Louise 
Stevens Prince spent her holidays in Penn-

Summer travelers abounded in our class, 
and doubtless many an impromptu reunion 
too. Audrey Jackson Dade x-'26 and her 
writer-husband; Elinor Stevens Stockman 
and her family (young Marguerite is at 
Lasell) shared a festive dinner together on 
Cape Cod in August. The same month Betty 
Day Bracken and her husband, doing a spot 
of leisurely golfing at a country Inn in 
Maine came upon old "Lasellians," Mr. 
and Mrs. Charles Towne, who, hale and 
hearty, were enjoying the course too. (Mr. 
Towne was vice-principal during our Lasell 
days.) 

The summer laid rather a strain upon 
globe-trotting "Andy" and Dan Gage. Their 
casual and work-seeking "pilgrimage by 
Peugeot" through Europe took them through 
France and , Italy, then up to Garmisch- 



Partenkirchen, Heidelberg, Baden-Baden, 
Inter laken, Berne, Brussels and Antwerp. 
Here they gave up the little Peugeot and 
flew to Ireland, where they were to visit 
friends and had planned to rent a British car 
to tour to Killarney. But in Ireland stalwart 
Dan suffered a thrombosis and was taken to 
a hospital there! Despite this distressing 
wind-up to a joyous trip, our "Andy" coped 
in fine style — saw Dan through the first 
anxious fortnight — then flew home to open 
the Sacramento house, register for her year of 
kindergarten teaching, and had all in readi- 
ness for Dan when he was finally able to 
make the flight to the U.S.A. I'm glad to 
report that he has made a fine recovery, 
has even resumed part-time duties at Sacra- 
mento College, and during a recent jaunt 
to San Francisco, he and Andy danced a 
turn or two at a local hotel ! 

Anita Krakauer Doerr was (briefly) in 
these United States in July, when she and 
her Phil journeyed to Pasadena to be with 
his family at the bedside of Mr. Doerr, Sr. 

Ginnie Amos Farrington reported a 
rather frightening holocaust in the Miami 
area during September's hurricane. Luck- 
ily her own house survived the storm well, 
save for damage to the patio roof. She still 
yearns to see daughter Carolyn (Farrington 
Carson '51) and the "grand baby," but 
plans after the Jamaican trip she and her 
husband are taking this winter, to travel to 
Connecticut for that purpose, with the 
added anticipation of beholding a second 
"grand baby." 

Edith Jensen White must have had her 
travel appetite whetted in 1959, for May 1, 
I960 saw her launching forth on a six- 
month tour of Europe, with special atten- 
tion this time to Russia and Poland. Ede 
even learned the Russian alphabet so she 
could decipher a few signs ! A month after 
her return she set off to spend Christmas 
in San Francisco with daughter Brenda 
(White Harno '57) and granddaughter. 
Ede's son, Barry, is in the Army, stationed 
in Mainz, Germany. And to the greater 
glory o' '26, Ede also reports that she had 
just "re-uned" with Dode Schumaker 
Walthers, Dottie Schumaker and Dottie 
Aseltine Wadsworth. 

Our own travels followed the inevitable 
east-west pattern — a closing-up at Scitu- 
ate; a trek back in late September to "in- 
sert" Peb at Williams College, deposit 
Maris at Smith to take up her house-presi- 
dent duties; a divine motor trip back 
through the "burning beauties" of the 
Berkshires. Thanksgiving we flew to New 
York for a week at the Waldorf, to cele- 
brate the holidays with our two collegians 
and Nadine Strong James and her delight-

ful husband. It was special fun to take 
Maris to her first Metropolitan opera — 
the glittering "Aida." The Jameses were 
"between trips" — Europe in October, 
Bermuda in December. 

Friends of Isabelle Africa Rolfe will be 
interested to know that "Afric" is a resi-

Art Center of New Hampshire.

Dear Girls, 

The Christmas greetings were many and 
warm — the news rare, which I willingly 
share: 

Lucy Field Wildman says: "Our grand- 
daughters are precious ■ — ■ and we are ac- 
tually simple over them ! Jerry is a senior 
at Morris Harvey College here in Charles- 
ton, W. Va." 

From Minerva Damon Ludewig: "An- 
other Christmas finds me in this charming 
city of San Francisco. Keep busier than 
Mickey the Mouse with many old friends, 
much volunteer work, old hobbies, new in- 
terests and play golf like crazy. Hope to 
have a brief vacation in the southern part 
of the state, with a little jaunt to Mexico. 

Elinor Day Conley keeps "well and hap- 
py and busy with her work at the Boston 
Public Library." 

A delightfully long letter from Marjorie 
Maxfield Smith: "For the first time in nine 
years, I was away from Florida this sum- 
mer. As a member of the All-America 
Chorus, enjoyed a good-will concert tour 
of Europe for six weeks. The 100-voice 
group, representing forty states, was di- 
rected by Dr. James Allen Dash of Balti- 
more. It was a wonderful, if hectic, trip, 
and we sang in Italy, France, Switzerland, 
Austria, Germany and Czechoslovakia, also 
in Monaco, Lichtenstein and Luxembourg. 

"A week after returning from Europe, I 
took off for a motor trip around the Gaspe 
Peninsula, first visiting friends in Quebec. 
In September my sister-in-law and I at- 
tended the annual meeting of the Governor 
William Bradford Compact at Kingston 
and Plymouth, and added a tour of the 
Cape. While in Plymouth, Esther Josselyn 
and I spent a Sunday together and it was 
so good to see her again. 

"One of the most pleasant happenings 
of the summer was meeting another Lasell 
grad - — ■ Evelyn Ebert Allen '99- Her cousin 
is a neighbor of mine here in Lake Wales." 

I have just learned that our dear Marcia 
Pinkham passed away on April 16, I960, 
after a long illness. Her sister-in-law, 
Doris, whom many of you remember, wrote 
me the sad news. The Class of 1927 extends 
deepest sympathy to all Marcia's dear ones. 

Early in February David and I leave for 
a Caribbean cruise, which we adore re- 
peating every few years. We are both 
eagerly anticipating this mid-winter vaca- 
tion.

Dear Girls, 

Again across the seas we send our fond- 
est hopes that the Yuletide and the New 
Year will bring to all our dear friends 
life's richest blessings. 

This year we greet you from Ville- 
franche, on the French Riviera only a few 
miles from Nice and Cannes. It is truly 
a most beautiful part of the world, with 
interesting and friendly people. Only an 
hour's drive to the North are the majestic 
French Alps, where Ann and Sally hope 
to participate in winter sports. And speak- 
ing of "sports," Hank will be kept busy on 
the "Bikini Watch" along the famous coast 
line. 

The Monroes have had a glorious year 
in Naples. Hank found his job as Com- 
mander Service Force Sixth Fleet most in- 
teresting and challenging and enjoyed it 
tremendously. In November he became 
Chief of Staff for Vice Admiral George W. 
Anderson, Jr., Commander Sixth Fleet, and 
while the new position is even more time- 
consuming than the last, he seems to be 
thriving.

A year ago, we were fortunate to arrive 
in Berchtesgaden, Germany on Christmas 
Eve and our visit there was a never-to-be- 
forgotten one. The spring and summer 
brought visits to Rome, Sorrento, Amalfi 
Drive, Pisa, Capri and Ischia, and in July 
there was a delightful week in Cannes. 

Ann celebrated her sixteenth at Rapallo 
on the Italian Riviera — without Dad or 
Mother. Karin drove across Italy with 
another Navy wife to visit Hank, while he 
was in Bari on the Adriatic. Ann, Sally and 
Karin were fortunate enough to have a 
ten-day cruise to the Eastern Mediterranean 
— after school — and visited Tripoli, 
Athens, Istanbul and Izmir. 

This letter begins to sound like a trav- 
elogue, but believe it or not, life in Napoli 
was quite normally enjoyed too. Ann and 
Sally were busy with usual school work 
and the extracurricular activities — basketball, 
tennis, sailing, much swimming, water ski- 
ing, folk dancing and cheer leading. They 
have made so many very fine friends and we 
are most impressed with the interests, 
standards and attitudes of our teen-agers 
in this part of the world. 

Kay thoroughly enjoyed a very cosmopol- 
itan school for her age group. At four 
years, she packs off in the school bus like 
any oldster. 

Karin is constantly busy with Gray Lady 
work with the Red Cross, meeting ships 
and seeing-off old friends, and driving the 
little Hillman about the local countryside 
like a true Neapolitan (and says a prayer 
of Thanksgiving each evening as she de- 
posits the car safely in the garage — Oh, 
the Neapolitan drivers!). 

Time and time again during this past 
year we have remarked — "If only we 
might share these experiences with family 
and friends." We think and speak of you 
so often and pray that life's very best will 
be yours — "tili we meet again."

Helen Flint Moody '37 and Family 



Tap had a nice visit with Meredith Tillot- 
son Richardson this fall as she and her hus- 
band were "college looking" with their most 
attractive daughter, Pam. Naturally, Lasell 
was on the list. 

Anne Tipton Gardner x-'37 paid me a 
Christmas week visit with her husband 
and their two handsome sons — Chris 
hopes to go to Duke next year and "Tip" 
is a real 10-year-older. In her spare time 
sells real estate and loves it. 

Trithena McFarland Argo '38 says that 
she just loves Texas (Houston) and hopes 
they never have to move again. 

Catherine Laffin Mahoney x-'37 is hav- 
ing a busy time with her big family. The 
oldest, Nancy, a Regis College graduate, 
is with the State Department in Colombo, 
and Shelia, a Regis alumna too, has an- 
nounced her engagement. The four younger 
ones keep Kay hopping — right now running 
taxi service for skiing and skating. Nothing 
like Maine in the winter. 

Janet Owens De Arment sent a grand 
picture of the entire family. Son, Jim, 
graduates in June from Valley Forge Acad- 
emy and daughter, Anne, is looking for- 
ward to Lasell in two years. 

Marge Gilbert Wiggin writes that daugh- 
ter "Rick" is enjoying Washington State 
University. She pledged Theta Sorority, 
is an R.O.T.C. princess, and is a member 
of the water ballet team. Rick ranked #10 
in her high school class and was a princess 
and song queen in both her Junior and 
Senior years. Son, Danny, is a sixth grader 
— an ardent skier, swimmer, scout and 
made the school football team. Husband, 
Fred, is on the Dyna-Soar Program at Boe- 
ing. 

Helen Williams Hoyt tells of her busy 
life with five children. Her husband's 
spare time activities are devoted to the 
Naval Reserve — is now in command 
of a D.E. newly based at New Haven, and 
spends a week-end each month at sea. 
While visiting at Sheffield Academy, where 
"Weedy" is a student, Billie met Faye 
Wadhams Smith '38 and her twin girls. 
Faye's son is a freshman at Sheffield. 

"We are more than delighted to be in 
Florida again," writes Eleanor Cole Keeler,

Early in October Eleanor Pfaff was off

From Ginny Black DeLong: "Thought 
you would be interested to know how 
small the world really is and that Lasell

a neighbor invited me for morning coffee, 
and as we talked about New England, I 
learned that I was meeting Jackie Eldridge

"Pat Reader Crone '51 is working hard

From Secretary Gloria Sylvia Paolella: 
"The November Leaves carried an an- 
nouncement of my wedding on May 29, 
I960, and I want to add a few details. The 
wedding took place in the First Presby- 
terian Church in New Rochelle where I 
have been alto soloist for four years, and 
the reception was held in the church par- 
lors. Among the guests were Lasellites Jan 
Stearns Gille and Jim, Bunny Widenor 
Bailey and Butch, and my Junior Sister 
Bubbles Davenport Weidmann '48, who 
came from New Jersey with husband Bud 
and three of their four children. 

"John and I had a dream-come-true 
honeymoon — six weeks in Europe! We 
flew to Paris, where we bought our Peugeot 
— drove to Switzerland, visiting Basle, 
Berne, Interlochen and Grindelwald, over 
the Gothard Pass to Lake Lugano — beau- 
tiful country — not exaggerated in calen- 
dar pictures. Never have I seen so many 
lovely flowers, and the Alps are spectacular, 
exciting and frightening. How cold it was 
there in the snow, and then what a surprise 
to arrive at tropical Lake Lugano ! 

"On to Italy — homeland of my hus- 
band's people — and our itinerary included 
Milan, Padua, Venice (at which point we 
went via train to Vienna for a long week- 
end with friends). Then down to Bologna, 
Florence and the 'hill' towns of Perugia 
and Assissi to Rome. We enjoyed a week 
in Sorrento — with side trips to Pompeii, 
Salerno, Ravello, the Amain Drive and the 
Isle of Capri. Returned along the coast 
with stops in Pisa, Genoa and the French 
Riviera. We returned to Paris in time to 
attend the Fourth of July celebration at the 
American Embassy for a wonderful garden 
party. 

"John has resumed his post-graduate 
studies at Columbia University, and is com- 
pleting requirements for a Master's in Edu- 
cation." 

Mollie Kendrick Pike "spent the summer 
in Massachusetts, and had a grand visit

The Class extends deepest sympathy to

Dottie writes of the passing of their young-

Sympathy is extended also to Barbara

died on September 12, I960, after a long 
illness. An electrical engineer with Wigton 
Abbott Corporation of Plainfield, N. J., 
George was a member of the Plainfield

Berry reports of San Francisco vaca-

derful time in California — and the dinner 
in Chinatown." Ann Bradford x-'48 ar-

Barbara Rymer Cole and husband Bill. 
The Coles' all-inclusive tour included a 
motor trip along the coast (with Berry), 
Treasure Island, Seal Rock, Cliff House for 
dinner, Top of the Mark, Officers' Club, 
Ice Follies and the Gay Nineties Revue. 
Barbara commented : "Don't believe our 



three little ones missed us — I suppose that 
indicates good adjustment, but it is rather 
deflating to the ego! Have resumed studies 
at San Diego State — working toward a 
teaching credential — and shall try to 
compete with the teenagers!" 

Corky Buffum's vacation was spent in 
Europe — and we are waiting for a report,

so no building contractors were needed." 
And looking forward to moving to a 
new seven-room split level home is Bette 
Morton Whelan and family. Hope to re- 
port their new address soon. 

A November issue of the Lawrence 
(Mass.) Evening Eagle-Tribune carried a 
fine picture of Roberta Cohan Shack as 
well as a feature story "Presenting Women 
You Should Know." It reads, in part: 
"Mrs. Norman M. Shack of 32 Jane Road 
Methuen, is affiliated with a number of 
local organizations and she makes a 
specific contribution to each of them. She 
is serving as president of the local com- 
mittee of Brandeis Women, whose main 
project is support of the library at Brandeis

Grover '48, with son John

University and she is a former board mem- 
ber of the Sisterhood of Temple Emanuel, 
Senior Hadassah and the Jewish Com-- 
munity Center Women's Group. Mrs. 
Shack is also a volunteer worker at the 
Cerebral Palsy clinic. The Shacks have 
three children, William, a third-grade 
pupil at Searles School, Methuen, Betsy 
Lynn, who is in the first grade, and Karen 
Jane." 

With her check for the Alumnae Fund, 
Barbara Jewell Allen sent a new address 
and this bit of news: "We are not a 
superstitious family and on Friday, May 
13th we came from California via plane. 
We are now located in Amston, Connecti- 
cut (R.F.D. #1) and thoroughly enjoying 
the country — a marked contrast from the 
desert where we lived for three years. The 
children are fine and adjusting so happily 
to New England." 

We are glad to report that Doris Trefny 
Kennedy is making good progress after 
many months of hospitalization. She adds: 
"You know that old slogan — Don't Give 
Up the Ship — well, I am fighting. Would 
so love to visit Lasell and see the many 
changes, and could be 1961 will be the 
year for me to do just that!" 

Many exclamation marks followed one 
sentence from Anne Chapman Berl: "Col- 
lege was never like this — complete chaos 

— building a new home near Wilmington 

— the eldest of our three is now off to 
kindergarten." 

Shirley Tighe Barrett is now in Ithaca, 
New York — 5 Renwick Drive — and 
husband "Bob is the radiologist for the 
Cornell Veterinary College, doing both 
teaching and clinical work. The children 
are looking forward to a winter with lots 
of snow." 

Jane Anderson Calhoun is so right! "I 
am sure by now you are all having a time 
keeping up with our many addresses. George 
completed helicopter training in Texas 
and we are now at Fort Bragg — 7 5 -A 
Sicily Drive." 

Jeanne Meyer Bird writes: "After a sum- 
mer in New England politicking, we have 
returned to Virginia, where we hope to 
do more of the same. Enjoyed being a 
member of a seminar for foreign students, 
who came on Ford Foundation Scholarships 
to Washington, and am looking forward to 
another session in mid-winter." 

Shirley Thorne Brady is the "busy chair- 
man of the Ways and Means Committee 
of the Junior Woman's Club of West 
Essex (N.J.). Met Jean Nelson Roberson 
while we were both teaching vacation 
Bible School this summer. Walter and I 
enjoyed our annual vacation on Cape Cod."

From Secretary Joan DeGelleke Shews- 
bury: 

Many close friends of Judy Wilson Kel- 
ton have telephoned or written since read- 
ing of her sudden passing last February 
that I feel I must share the details I know. 
Her husband, Dick, most thoughtfully 
wrote to say she had died of pneumonia. 
California friends were taking care of the 
three small children and Dick was hoping 
to make arrangements for the family to be 
together again. Judy's quiet, happy way 
reached so many of us in the short time 
we knew her, and we shall not soon for- 
get her. 

Sympathy is extended to Cynthia Platz 
Latham, whose mother passed away very 
suddenly during the summer. 

Lil Reinesch Mallon and I are discussing 
ways of crossing Long Island — for that 
is all we have to do to visit each other. 
Lil's husband, Vin, has been appointed 
Town Attorney for the Township of

Joan DeGelleke Shrewsbury '49 
with David and Sarah 

Britain, Conn.), who tells me that Deborah, 
Jeff and Jay were delighted with the ar- 
rival of brother Jody on July 23, I960. 

We were recent dinner guests of Eunice 
Buell Earle x-'49- She and David are 
now living at 5 Grimmsbrook Road, Sims- 
bury, Conn. 

Enjoy frequent letters from Nat Hall 
Campbell and expect to see her, Roger, 
Ginny Lee and Bonnie at Christmas. Also 
received great news from Nan Hayden 
Drooff — the arrival of Peter on August 
2, I960. Nance, Gerd and young Peter 
spent Thanksgiving in Dayton, Ohio with 
Toni (Hayden Durkee '54) and are looking 
forward to a European trip in the early 
summer. 

Talked with Straw Lawson Donahue on 
the telephone and caught up with the be- 
hind-the-Democratic-scene action. Dick was 
Assistant Director of Organization for the 
National Committee, and he and Straw 
spent the exciting election night at the 
Kennedy home in Hyannisport. And they 
will be in Washington, of course, for the 
Inauguration festivities. 

Additional news from Kay Poore Hamel: 

Anne Preston Brush would love to hear 
from any '49-ers in the Albany area. Hus- 
band Charles is with Smith, Barney and 
Company, investment brokers there. They 
have two children — Peter, 5, and Kim 
Elizabeth, 4. 

Cynthia (Woodward), Jack and the 
Witherell children are enjoying Heidelberg, 
where Jack is now stationed. The address: 
c/o Capt. J. R. Witherell, Intel. Div., Hq. 
USAREUR, APO 403, N. Y., N.Y. 

As I entered the room at bridge club not 
long ago, someone shrieked — Why, Kay 
Poore! None other than Lois Salomon 
Burns, who has recently moved to Fort 
Wayne. She, husband Robert and daughter 
Sidney, now three years old, are enjoying 
their new home at 4409 Winston Drive. 

Our BIG news is the arrival of David 



Arthur Hamel. David was born July 26, 
I960 and adopted by Dana and me on 
August 4th — straight from the hospital. 
He is a wonderful baby and has not slowed 
down our travels to any extent. In Septem- 
ber we spent several days in northern Michi- 
gan with Jan Bartlett Erratt '50, Dick, and 
their 18-month-old son, Bruce. The boys 
enjoyed fishing; we girls baby-sat. Later in 
the month we drove East to visit our families 
— and, of course, to show off David. Had 
a delightful evening with Carol Dunn Burns 
and Mark, and were so sorry Jean Sargent 
Lee and Bob were not ablt to join us. Back 
home in Indiana, we were so happy to have 
Evie Frye White and sons, Douglas and 
Sammy, as house guests. 

Louise Keene Mills; Jean Sargent Lee 
and I were very saddened to learn of the 
tragic death of our beloved "ex-boss" at 
Children's Hospital, Dr. David S. Grice. He 
was among the victims of the Eastern Air 
Lines crash at Logan Airport in October. 

Nancy Macdonough Jennings writes: 
"Larry joined the staff of Bohn Aluminum 
Corp. and we are now living in Danville, 
Illinois. Have just moved to a new four- 
bedroom ranch house at 1608 Grant Street. 
Diane is now a third grader; twins Debbie 
and David are in the first grade, and Donna, 
now nearly five, keeps me company during 
the day." 

Marge Boynton Anderson "enjoys read- 
ing of friends via the LEAVES. We are 
very fond of Morristown (N.J.), where we 
have lived for the past seven years. Teddy, 
7, is in second grade; Audrey, 4, attends 
nursery school ; and Neil, 2, keeps very 
busy about the house."

a year and to South and Central American 
countries. And next year his inspection of 
cocoa plantations may include Ghana in 
Africa. 

"We are enjoying our new. home very 
much. Ed finished the recreation room and 
my contribution to the project was installing 
the ceiling tile. Have also become interested

turbed children. In our group there are six 
children and three teachers, which allows 
time for necessary individual attention. The 
two children in my charge I teach academic 



subjects, arithmetic, spelling, language, read- 
ing and then take them out to play or down 
to the workshop. I loved every moment of 
the seven weeks spent in Europe this sum- 
mer. My favorite country was Italy. There 
were innumerable appealing cities, towns, 
and people. I was enthralled by the scenery 
of Switzerland, the cleanliness of Holland 
and the gaiety of Paris. Germany, of course, 
gave us the magnificent Passion Play, and 
we enjoyed the London theatres too. Please 
remember me to Miss McClelland and other 
Lasell friends."

LASELL LEAVES 



May 1961 



To the Alumnae: 



Since last July I have had the privilege of meeting many of the alumnae 
of Lasell Junior College and Lasell Seminary. In the months ahead, at Commence- 
ment and at area Club meetings, I hope to have the opportunity to meet many 
more former students. In the meantime I want you to know that the Tewksburys 
are proud to be part of the Lasell family, and are grateful for the very warm and 
friendly manner in which we've been received by so many of you. 

Although you may be able to find much satisfaction in reminiscing about your 
days as a student at Lasell, in order for you to continue to take pride in your Alma 
Mater we must always seek to improve its stature in the educational community. No 
college can afford to rest on past laurels or present reputation, but must continuously 
look to and plan for the future. This year much attention will be devoted to 
long-range planning for Lasell. Far-reaching decisions will be made concerning 
the future growth of the College in the areas of enrollment, academic programs, 
financing, and physical facilities. 

As our "most important product," alumnae play a significant role in the 
present and future welfare of Lasell. You do this in many ways: when you 
constructively mention Lasell to relatives, friends or acquaintances; when you 
urge well-qualified prospective students to seek admission; when you interview 
applicants at the request of the admissions office; when you recommend graduates 
for transfer to four-year colleges or in finding employment; when you offer 
suggestions for improvement of the College to Trustees or staff; when you con- 
tribute financially to provide the facilities we need and when you recommend to 
others that they do likewise; when you support or participate in campus programs 
and activities; and when you work for a more active and effective Alumnae, Inc. 

We want you always to be well informed about the College, its plans, its 
activities, and its accomplishments. Remember that Lasell is your college and you 
have a voice and a part in its future, as you have had in its past. 

Please feel welcome to spend a few moments with us whenever you are in the 
vicinity of the campus. 

Most sincerely yours, 




President

LASELL LEAVES 



The May 1961 issue of the Leaves, as will future spring issues, will contain a 
summary of the current year's Fund, and August issues will be devoted to Com- 
mencement and reunion news. 

A motion was made that all class agents, class secretaries and club officers 
shall be Life Members or paid-up members of Lasell Alumnae, Inc. It was 
seconded and passed. 

A colored portrait of the late Dr. Guy M. Winslow was presented to the 
college by the Alumnae, and it now hangs in the redecorated reception room at 
Bragdon Hall. It was agreed to send the floral centerpiece to Lena Josselyn 
Lamson, Life Secretary of the Class of 1897. 

The meeting was adjourned and everyone was invited to President and Mrs. 
Tewksbury's home for coffee.

Dr. Tewksbury, our principal speaker, discussed the topic "What Share Shall 
the Junior Colleges Bear?" Dr. Tewksbury said in part: 

"If I were to give a flat answer to the question I have posed in the title of my 
remarks, I would unhesitatingly say that the share junior college education has to 
bear in the future of our country is certain to be a great, dramatic and increasingly 
important one. . . . First, it is well to remind ourselves of the developments in our 
society, especially that of the United States, that inevitably resulted in a need and 
demand for the kind of institutions which we now know under the generic term 
'junior college.' Second, we need to consider very carefully the question of the 
objectives the junior college seeks to achieve. And third, I believe we need to 
examine the present and prospective place of the junior college in the educational 
scheme of things. 

"As I read the record, there are four major developments which created both 
the need and demand for the kind of educational service the junior college gives. 



12 LASELL LEAVES 



The first of these forces is the dedication of the American people to the principle 
that its welfare depends upon the individual and that the fortunes of the indi- 
vidual and of society rise and fall together. It was dedication to this belief that 
originally led to the development of publicly supported elementary and secondary 
education. It was this belief that led to the development of our great system of 
publicly supported land grant colleges and universities. It is this belief and public 
concern that educational opportunity should be provided for every individual, in- 
sofar as he is capable of profiting from it, that has led to the emergence of numerous 
types of institutions designed to serve new constituencies and to meet emerging 
social needs. If only a single type of opportunity were available to everyone, 
obviously there would be many who would not be either willing or able to take 
advantage of that opportunity and hence would not get their chance. In this con- 
nection it is a matter of historical fact that Lasell was the first 'junior college' 
because it has offered a continuous program on this level of education since its 
founding in 1851. 'Terminal' work in domestic science was offered at Lasell on 
the junior college level as early as 1874. 

"The second social force of impressive magnitude that led to the creation of 
the junior college was the growth of knowledge itself and a consequent vastly 
increased complexity of our society. 

"The third social force, directly related to the second, is the greater demands 
made by the individual person's occupation. The unskilled laborer formed a signifi- 
cant part of the labor market at the turn of the century. The skilled laborer was 
in the minority. But today, on nearly any kind of human enterprise that you can 
name, whether it be a construction project, factory, farm, mine, ship, doctor's 
office, or department store, special skill is required of the employee. As a result 
our schools and colleges have been called upon to give more and more attention 
to developing the skills our society requires in order that the individual may have 
the necessary proficiencies to get a job and to live a useful life. 

"The fourth social need is perhaps the most important of all, that is, proper 
management of our society. The condition of the people's being informed must 
be met by the schools and colleges, for people will surely make judgments and they 
must be made. Whether they are informed judgments or not is the important 
question, for the Tightness of the decision taken will depend upon the wisdom of 
the judgment. 

"These, then, are the major forces that I see which led to the establishment 
of the junior college. The two-year institution was established to provide oppor- 
tunity not previously available for certain individuals. It was established to pro- 
vide a means of improving the skills of those who attended in order that they might 
make more effective contributions to their own welfare and to society's. 

"I am convinced that the junior college student population includes a substan- 
tial number of those whose educational objectives have not been determined, who 
have not yet found themselves. They are the ones whom President Cole of Amherst 
called the 'late bloomers.' An important part of our work is identifying them and 
encouraging them just as the high school should assist the 'early bloomers' to come 
to their decisions. The soundness of any educational pattern should always be its 
concern with the individual. 

"It is abundantly clear that the number of students in junior colleges is increas- 
ing sharply. Last fall Lasell admitted 390 of 1200 applicants, or one-in-three. 
However, the total of applications for next fall is running about 30% ahead of 
last year's so our enrollment will include nearer one-in-four candidates for 1961-62.

COUNCIL DINNER GUESTS 
L. to r., Mr. Arnold, Mrs. Arnold, Mrs. Tewksbury, Dr. Tewksbury, Mrs. Winslow, 

Mr. Winslow 



"There is a great need for expansion of public community colleges and other 
forms of higher education, both public and private, in Massachusetts. In the 
proportion of resources going to public higher education, Massachusetts is the last 
state in the union. Indeed, our private higher education is unexcelled. But with 
education becoming more expensive and with the projected increase in enrollment, 
we desperately need additional resources for higher education. The junior college 
may well provide the solution to filling the need." 

A Question and Answer period followed the coffee recess. The informal dis- 
cussion was conducted by Elizabeth Harrington Logan, Louise Tardivel Higgins 
'37 and Ruth Turner Crosby '42. Mrs. Higgins, chairman of the Alumnae Fund, 
called particular attention to the Matching Gift Program offered by the country's 
leading businesses and industries. She requested that in the 1961-62 campaign 
class agents thank each contributor with a personal note. Mrs. Crosby, substituting 
for Alumnae Clubs Advisor Dorothy Inett Taylor '30, reported on the sale of 
Christmas wrapping paper and the money that had been raised by clubs for the 
Alumnae Scholarship Fund. Mrs. Logan asked the club representatives present to 
report on fund raising projects and public relations efforts within their groups. 
Marjorie MacClymon '32 told of plans for 1961 Alumnae Day activities. 

At the afternoon session, Mrs. Logan served as moderator for the panel com- 
prised of Priscilla Alden Wolfe '19, Chairman of the Board of Trustees; Marie 
R. Kaden '53, acting director of the Board of Admissions, and Constance W. 
Milner, co-ordinator of the Nursing Program. Miss Kaden and Miss Milner re- 
ported on their respective departments and encouraged questions from the Council. 
Mrs. Wolfe told of the changes and improvements at the college during the past 
year, and invited all to inspect the architect's plans for the proposed new gym- 
nasium. She also announced that the Board of Trustees have approved funds for 
a secretarial science classroom building, plans for which are now in process. It is 
hoped the building will be ready for use in September 1962. 

A tour of the campus followed the adjournment of the meeting. 

Respectfully submitted, 

Priscilla Parmenter Madden '37 

Recording Secretary
